Media Organization:Interview Magazine

Company Description

Affectionately nicknamed “The Crystal Ball of Pop,” Interview is Andy Warhol’s magazine established in 1969.

Interview has, for the past half-decade, been built on a simple conceit: put two interesting people together and turn on a tape recorder. The publication of today unifies the best of Interview’s many eras — the film journal of the ’70s, the society rag of the ’80s, the Hollywood-obsessed monthly of the ’90s and aughts, and the fashion glossy of the teens—while making it feel fresh and alive and un-put-downable for the readers
of now.
