A brief history of i-D magazine
Founded by Terry Jones, former art director for British Vogue, the first issue of i-D was published as a hand-stapled fanzine and was distributed from the trunk of a Cadillac. Today it is one of the leading glossies in the fashion world, selling on newsstands around the globe. Over the years, many famous photographers started their careers at the publication, Wolfgang Tillmans, Mario Testino, Terry Richardson, Nick Knight and Juergen Teller being some of them.
In a move to expand their reach into the digital world, i-D joined the VICE MEDIA family in 2012. It has since created a leading video content platform, presenting audiences with a wide spectrum of interviews, documentaries and more.
What is i-D’s cultural impact?
The impact i-D has had on creative culture is unparalleled. As one of the first magazines of its kind, the longevity and continued success are proof that i-D is highly adaptive, being able to re-imagine itself constantly in harmony with the contemporary zeitgeist. The introductions of street style, up-and-coming photographers, and experimental typography to a wider mainstream audience, have collectively influenced the direction of the entire fashion industry at large, backing up the magazine’s motto of originate – don’t imitate.
