With hopes to empower a new generation of smart women through honest interviews and insightful commentaries, Riposte is a new magazine that highlights important changes in art, design, business and politics. Modeled after old National Geographic magazines, Riposte is brought to life by creative photography and artistic illustrations.
Unlike other magazines, Riposte will stay true to a specific format, featuring five ideas, four meetings, three features, two essays and one iconic person. For the first issue, Riposte interviewed Françoise Mouly, the art editor of the The New Yorker, about her first publishing venture, and spoke to others including the street smart and business savvy Nong Poonsukwattana, who built her Portland-based street food business from the ground up, set designer Es Develin, and two of the earliest computer programmers Ada Lovelace and Grace Hopper. You can expect the first issue to be gleaming with powerful women and powerful stories.
The editorial team at Riposte wants to profile bold and fascinating women who are confident in their talents and professional achievements. Every woman has a different charisma, one that is unique and candidly expressed. Riposte is able to capture their spark for life and translate it into essays, focusing on successes & failures, their work, their passions and perspectives. Riposte is published bi-annually. You can pre-order the magazine here, and expect Issue #1 out on November 27th. Riposte
