At the Facing Pages festival 2012 we talked with organizer Joost van der Steen, who’s quite an enterprising person. This interaction designer is partner in design studio OK Parking – together with graphic designer William van Giessen. To celebrate the first birthday of a blog they were keeping up, they surprised their contributors with the publication of OK Periodical magazine, which eventually led to a series of eight issues. Driven by their love for independent magazines, on top of that they decided to organize the OK festival in 2010, about independent magazines powered by crowdsourcing. We talk with Joost about all his initiatives and we ask him if he has some advise for people who want to start up their own magazine. We end the talk by reflecting some nice lectures that were given at the first edition of the festival. Recorded at Facing Pages 2012, Arnhem, The Netherlands.
