April Letter from the Editor

Friday, April 01, 2016 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

Happy April everyone!

I will NOT be pulling any April Fool's jokes on anyone today, but I am giggling at some of the ones I see occurring over social media. Welcome to Spring in Chicago friends. I can feel it in the air and I am getting more and more excited. I love spring and summer in our beautiful city. Chicago just comes alive during the warmer months.

I am also looking forward to this month as we are already midway through organizing our Summer issue! We will be featuring Chicago's Movers & Shakers in June. I can't wait to share all the awesome stories and our fashion shoot! We have some new faces on the team, some wonderful creative visionaries who are on board to work with Laura and I and I can't wait to see the magic that comes of it all.

For this month's blog theme, we will be focusing on innovation. Throughout the posts you will see from our contributors, you'll get the chance to read about creatives, artists, musicians, brands, products that are interesting and shaking up the status quo. As we lead into spring, we are hoping to reawaken your mind and continue to inspire you to do, create and live the best you can. We kicked off this month's series with a feature on a Chicago Film Maker: Brad Bischoff and his latest kickstarter campaign for his feature film: The Grasshopper. This month you will get to read more about people just like Brad working hard to follow their dreams and create projects that are unique, interesting and are impactful.

The Halfstack Highlights podcast will be continuing our season theme of EXPLORE, but we will be talking more in depth with businesses, creatives, brands and people who embody innovation through exploration of their craft this month! You can download past episodes HERE and read the past features HERE. You can catch up with our Beauty/Fashion/Lifestyle Vloggers on our youtube channel as well HERE. We are still looking for youtubers who want to join our network! If you are a growing channel looking to cross promote and connect with a larger audience and brands - please email us at 

Keep checking back for more inspiration this month! Remember you can also keep up with us on social media on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. We are also on google plus +Halfstack Magazine and +Snapchat  @halfstackmag!
