Neocha Magazine – Issue 01

In our increasingly digitized world of device screens and Wi-Fi connections, it’s easy to forget the sense of permanence and focused attention you’re afforded when interacting with a piece of printed work. From feeling the paper stock texture to excitedly awaiting what’s revealed on the next turn of the page, print media offers a tactile experience that simply cannot be replaced by technology. And frankly, we’ve been craving this experience lately.


在如今日益被屏幕和Wi-Fi侵占的数字化世界里,我们很容易就忘记了与纸质印刷品打交道时,那样的持久感和注意力——从亲自摸到纸张的质感、到充满期待地翻开下一页……纸质印刷品所提供的触感体验,永远是科技无法取代的。说实话,我们最近也一直在渴望着这种体验。

As such, we’re happy to announce the first printed issue of Neocha, a tangible extension of our mission to celebrate Asia’s burgeoning creative class. In this debut issue, we’re embracing both the digital and the analog with short format stories that provide readers an opportunity to explore supplementary video and photo content online via QR scanning. From a photo series examining the lives of farmers in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan to a profile on Chengdu rap quartet Higher BrotherNeocha – Issue 01 is a roundup of some of our favorite cultural and creative stories from around the region.
