CLIENT is a leading independent British menswear magazine, founded in 2010 by Ian Cole and printed quarterly in mono in a quality soft-back, perfect bound format. There is a definitive classic feel to Client whilst embracing all that is here and now. Essentially it is a contemporary photography magazine and the genre is fashion. We are very keen to champion British design talent, but we are not limited by it.
Whilst not trying to take things too seriously, we use a fashion dialogue to explore youth and masculinity. To Client, originality is a must and we are crazy about featuring true talent. At the core, we’re not a glossy, but neither are we an anti-glossy. It’s true to say were not very conventional and as such, we tend to lead, not follow. We favour honest and authentic photography as opposed to over-the-top retouched images. We like to keep it real.
Every issue is hand-crafted, working with a global community of creatives, photographers, stylists and male models. As you can see from the covers and editorials, we work with some of the best, but we also have a keen eye for emerging talent and often feature a number of photographers and models before anybody else – casting plays a pivotal role in the production of the magazine.
Client is available by mail order and selected stores plus you can buy in print, digital or Apple Newsstand versions.

We also produce ‘Client Style Guide‘ four times per year, which is a ‘style supplement’, to the regular issue. Originally much smaller in size, but now running at 68 pages in a beautiful full-colour soft back. This is where we feature both editorials and a shopping ‘style guide’ plus model and designer features; what to buy and where to buy it with hyperlinks direct to web stores on our digital versions. Client Style Guide is available in print, digital or Apple Newsstand versions, as well as for free on the issuu.com platform.

A number of photography-led travel magazines and guides are currently in production as part of a series launching under the Client Travel brand in Spring 2015. In addition to the print releases, a full digital section will launch, featuring design conscious editorial, original photography and field guides.
Overall, the focus will be on quirky, luxurious design hotels, boutiques, spa’s and resorts plus travel tailoring features. In addition, we will be integrating a Travel section into our British and USA Client Style Guides from Summer 2015.
