Conscious Magazine’s 3rd Issue Launch Party. A Thing of Beauty & Purpose

Last Wednesday, we here at Good vs Evil had the privilege of attending Conscious Magazine’s 3rd Issue Launch Party. We had a blast meeting new and old friends who are also committed to fighting for the forces of good.

We love Conscious because their core ideals of storytelling, community, collaboration, and education are making the world a better place. We love their focus on the good in the world achieved through positive stories and inspiring ideas, focused locally and globally, which urge us to do participate in improving our role here on the planet.

Not to mention how beautiful the new issue looks! All too often social good companies lack a needed aesthetic, but Conscious achieves this with design as impressive as its content.

The part was Held at Warburg Realty’s beautiful flagship office, last week reminded us why we love doing what we do. It was co-hosted by 100 CamerasThe Style LineElle CommunicationsModavanti, and yours truly. Also there sponsoring the event was ONE Hope Wine and Rehabulous. The party brought together attendees from all industries.  We were blessed to meet new people in marketing and advertising, design, finance, and all kinds of social ventures. It was quite inspiring to hear what they’re working on and how they’re changing the world.

It's us! The Good vs Evil team.

Co-founders Rachel & Elena, pictured above, gave an excellent speech midway to formally introduce the 3rd issue of Conscious and other key members of the team, as well as to highlight Conscious’s upcoming goals. They urged us to help propel Conscious’s continued success by spreading the word, which we are eager to do, and we encourage you to pick up an issue and do the same.

One of our favorite articles from the issue, Future Farming by Rob Dietz, highlights a new approach to ecological farming. It presents the problem of farming practices that have increasingly become damaging to communities and ecosystems through intense pursuits of higher output and profits. Then goes to showcase a solution of a new, organic model that results in higher performance and great sustainability. A problem, a solution, all concisely presented. Boom.

Another article, Future of Media by Sophia Markoulakis, explains how media platforms have transformed since the introduction of print, television, radio, mobile and digital. Markoulakis gives tips on how to find media that upholds journalism's ethics of accuracy, research, transparency, diverse sourcing, and unbiased reporting. We found it highly motivating!

Really though, every article is fantastic, so go read them and support Conscious today by visiting their website and subscribing. You can get a print or a digital copy, and you'll have two awesome magazines per year to look forward to. 

Thanks for having us, Conscious!

Can't wait to do it again.
