Experimental music fanzine

One from the archives: Playground is an experimental interactive magazine/fanzine that I created with journalist friends many, many years ago to test the viability of electronic versus paper publishing. 
 
We released it before the advent of iPads and tablets, but with the idea that that was the direction that magazines were travelling in - and with a desire to see how the print work and business models we were working with could translate electronically, and what we could do with a new medium.  
 
We launched one issue with no marketing or PR via a handful of independent music blogs and - within a few weeks - achieved higher readership (based on unique downloads against ABC data) than all of the print titles in our sector. We didn’t want to leave our collective jobs to continue it as a business but many of the lessons learned were used in subsequent projects.
