mous magazine issue #1
The story of the project
mous. (maʊs// mau-ss)
mous magazine is an independent Australian design and culture magazine based in Brisbane. We write the kind of articles and stories that we ourselves love to read – funny, original, honest, bold, unpretentious and relatable. We take a Scandinavian elegance and combine it with that Australian humour you just can’t breed out.
We have been running as an online publication since 2014, and with your help and support, we are excited to announce we will be creating our inaugural print edition in July 2015!
What is mous?
Our magazine centres around five categories: live, inform, design, create and fornicate. Within these themes you will find a creative and intellectual exploration into art, design, society and sex. We aim to engage intelligence without repressing creativity.
In the first issue of mous you can expect to find interviews with Hiatus Kaiyote and Finnish Prison Director Sinikka Saarela, alongside articles about spaghetti westerns and masturbation panic.
Who is mous?
We also have a small editorial team consisting of co-founders Allie Speers and Bonnie Stevens, Sub-Editor Hannah Collins and Editorial Assistant Imogen Baker.

How the funds will be used
This means: eco-friendly paper, printing, binding, distribution and postage costs.
Every cent above our target will go directly towards the people that helped bring the printed mous magazine together. As writers ourselves we understand how uncommon it is that you’re paid for the work you put in, so please give generously, so that we can give in return.
A Massive Thanks!
