Launched in February 2007, Monocle is a global briefing on international affairs, business, culture and design headquartered in London.
In print Monocle’s 10 issues a year are dense, book-ish and collectable and call on a global team of staff editors and over 30 correspondents from Beirut to Milan, Washington to Singapore.
Online Monocle focuses on broadcast and has become one of the most viewed news sources in many of our key markets. Our journalists report from around the world and craft films that are more documentary in form rather than a collection of clips. And we have made over 250 of them to date.
And then there’s Monocle 24, our round the clock radio station that launched in October 2011 and is broadcast from our headquarters at Midori House in Marylebone. You can listen live via our player at monocle.com or download shows from our site or iTunes. We also have a handy app. The station delivers news and comment, magazine shows for everything from food and drink to urbanism, design to print media. Our newsgathering operation will soon stretch to new bureaux in Sao Paulo and across Asia and more correspondents in emerging and established territories.
Via our shops in New York, London, Toronto, Tokyo and Hong Kong we sell products that cater to our readers’ tastes. We also have a café in Tokyo and another opening in London and you’ll also find Monocle kiosks in the best Hyatt hotels.
Monocle. Keeping an eye and an ear on the world.
