About The Face: born in London in 1980, the original, definitive style magazine. Reborn for 2019. Endless discovery for a new generation.
Launched by Nick Logan in London in 1980, The Face is the original, definitive style magazine.
From the beginning it was a cultural trailblazer, covering music, fashion, film, TV, society, politics and global current affairs. And it covered them with invention, innovation, wit and class – and not to mention with groundbreaking graphic design.
The gallery of cover stars is as eclectic as it is iconic: from Kate Moss to Alexander McQueen, New Order to The Stone Roses, Grace Jones to David Beckham, Beyoncé to Björk. The talent behind the stories was legendary, too, as the magazine worked with the best writers, photographers, stylists and designers in the world. The Face didn’t only report on the culture. It became the culture. For over 25 years, The Face was at the heart of British and international creativity.
Now, in 2019, The Face is reborn. A new team with a new vision for a new age, but proudly retaining the magazine’s founding vision and core principals. A forwardthinking, multiplatform title staying true to Logan’s pioneering spirit.
The Face will continue to champion fresh talent in music, fashion, TV, film and beyond; fly the flag for provocative, rigorous, longform journalism; and celebrate the best in style and graphic design. It is a space for immersive, dynamic, multifaceted stories. It is a space for fun, passion and enthusiasm.
Relaunched and reimagined as theface.com in April. Resurrected as a quarterly print magazine starting with the September issue
The Face is back. Still original, still definitive. Endless discovery for a new generation.
