After much discussion, we've decided to end the Colophon adventure.


We have neither the time nor the resources to surpass what we already made together under this name.


Many thanks to all partners, speakers and attendees from our various publications and events.


Colophon will be archived while we prepare our next creations.


Meantine, future collaborations will continue under the magCulture banner.

With love,
Mike, Jeremy and Andrew
