What is AGLOW?

Creatives thrive on community and community thrives with creatives. At my company Design Aglow, we've always known it was our mission to help foster community for photographers and creatives alike.

Ten years ago, we started with a digital magazine, with the simple goal of bringing creatives together by discovering and sharing new talent, inspiring our readers, and giving sound business advice.

Over the years, our brand evolved by providing business tools and resources to help thousands of photographers reach a higher level of success.

Now, ten years after our launch, Design Aglow has come full circle. Our community has grown to include photographers, filmmakers, writers, designers, bloggers and more. The creative industry is exploding with new talent, fresh opportunities and unlimited inspiration, and that's why we've created AGLOW magazine... to support this growing creative community.

Our original magazine was digital, but we are excited to take AGLOW one step further and offer it in a beautiful printed format. In this digital age, we need to remember that tangible, printed items matter. Our goal with AGLOW is to create a coffee table magazine that can be kept for years to come and help foster conversation and connection.

AGLOW will tell the stories of creatives who are thriving, who are making it on passion and innovation and hard work, who are changing the face of this industry every day.

We are excited to share studio tours, artistic work/life balance, inspired success stories, visual travel guides, creative living, blogging resources, fresh business ideas, creative community building, original education and so much more in AGLOW magazine, a quarterly publication devoted to the creative entrepreneur.

AGLOW explores the limitless possibilities of creative business and the fresh ideas of today’s doers and makers. We offer an escape from the daily routine in the form of a stunning keepsake publication full of inspiring features, beautiful layouts, uplifting stories, fresh perspectives, and real people that you will love to get to know.
