Next year is going to bring a lot of changes for Spin. The magazine is cutting its rate base and publishing frequency, while also increasing the size of the title and upping the paper stock to make what is left of Spin feel more premium. Each of the six bimonthly issues will carry a theme, much like the Nirvana issue that gained the magazine some praise, feature more long form journalism and be evenly distributed across the brand’s platforms.
Devin Pedzwater, Spin’s Creative Director, thinks the shift will make the print feel special while also allowing the magazine to increase its online presence.
“We’re extremely proud of the new Spin magazine in the way that it lends itself to permanence and collectability like never before,” said Pedzwater.
