The Collective

WHERE PUBLISHING MEETS CREATIVE SERVICES

The Collective Quarterly is a 200-page travel + lifestyle print publication about discovery. We tell true stories for a curious generation that demands originality. Our team journeys to one location per issue, where we utilize slow journalism to drill deep into the bedrock of history and character that makes a place what it is. When we travel, we’re searching for the essence of a region during a moment in time. Our stories are about uncommon people, places, and things.
