Ten elementary rules for a student wanting to commercially establish his fanzine:


1. The goal of a fanzine shouldn’t be commercial.
2. Have your own ideas.
3. Get an excellent team.
4. Produce a first issue without compromises.
5. Promote the first issue.
6. Gain credibility within your target group.
7. Produce a second issue.
8. Again: own ideas – no compromises – promote it – gain more credibility.
9. Develop your distribution network.
10. Become a reference in your field, but stay humble.

Two Rooms
Thursday, 16.09.2010

How lucky is the little big city of Zürich to have Two Rooms and its founder Stefano Wieting and how lucky are we to have met Moritz Firchow, the founder of Arcademi, who introduced us to this project? Two Rooms is divided in a back room serving as a design melting pot and the front room as a concept store. Find a well-curated selection of ever-changing products for small budgets to even bigger and more expensive toys. Mr. Wieting knows how to arrange his jewelry, crystal glasses, racing bikes, big brand watches and our print publication Qompendium in his exquisitely yet subtly designed store.
