Can you tell us a bit about how Ladybeard came about?
It began as a reaction to women’s magazines. We felt frustrated by the type of content aimed at women, so we wanted to do something ourselves. However, I wouldn't really say it's specifically a women’s magazine now.
We work in themed issues, and always aim to offer different perspectives and voices in each. The landscape is really changing, and there are a lot of amazing magazines out there – there's a really nice sense of everyone being in it together, working towards enriching mainstream media.
What are your hopes for Ladybeard’s future?
We don’t really have a plan! It’s always been something we do alongside work because we’re passionate about it. We just want to keep going and see where it takes us.
What would your advice be to others juggling both a personal project and full-time role?
Definitely don’t try and do everything. From experience, I definitely think it's better to focus and streamline what you're trying to do. We always get over-excited in the commissioning stage, and then end up having to cut things as we don't have room.
