Known for its appreciation of craftsmanship and innovative design, new gentleman’s journal Grain & Gram arrives as the latest publication for the modern man.
Self titled as ‘The New Gentleman’s Journal’, Grain & Gram focuses on the art of story telling and introducing craftsmen through their incredibly inspiring site. Each article focuses on young, creative, self-starting talents; each man’s occupation is totally hands on and more than just an occupation, it’s a trade. From Jean Makers, Butchers and Wood Workers to Printmakers, Grain & Gram offers a personal look into the life that pursues passion and creativity, using an elevated level of photography and video to communicate each story. Articles so far have introduced artisans such as Jason Gregory of Makr Carry Goods, Roy Slapper of Roy Jeans and woodworker Blaire Sligar.
Grain & Gram’s high standards for finding quality content means their speed of publication has been the sacrificed variable, but this comes with good reason. Their silent work process isn’t from a lack of purpose; rather, it’s their hard work spent crafting each article to create a focused and enjoyable experience for the reader. While most other online blogs and publications drive out infinite offerings daily, the guys at Grain & Gram are content to gradually push out small, considered editorials to maintain a crafted and quality collection, without “filler or fluff” (as they say).
