Kinfolk

The urbanist

Kinfolk was created by Nathan Williams, his wife Katie Searle-Williams and their friends Doug and Paige Bischoff in July 2011. Primarily a lifestyle magazine aimed at young professionals, it focuses on home, work, play, food and community through photo essays, recipes, interviews, profiles, personal stories and practical tips. The writers, photographers, designers and chefs that contribute to Kinfolk are drawn from a largely international pool of creative people, often featuring more than 50 individual contributors an issue.

 

Released quarterly, each issue is themed around a topic that is related to the season it is being published in, with all food, entertaining and lifestyle content geared towards that theme. Sample articles include interviews with well-known chefs, sample themed menus with accompanying recipes, illustrated guides to daily encounters and inspirational photo essays encouraging readers to try new activities.

 

In addition to its print publication, Kinfolk organizes monthly “community gathering” events that take place around the world, each based on a seasonal theme such as flower potlucks, butcher’s block parties and campfire cooking.

 

These events take place concurrently and aim to unite the global community of Kinfolk readers while also offering practical advice and lessons. The company also produces international food-based workshops, cookbooks and a short film series.
