Musotrees Magazine Volume 3 is out now! However, you will also develop skills, characterise ideas, anticipate possibilities and eventually become one who is always flexible in order to achieve the most satisfying result. In Musotress Magazine Volume 3, we explore the theme of Enterprising, where we present stories of journeys and success. We sourced stories from Marrakesh and Fez, Auckland, Prague, Galle and Dubrovnik. We spoke to entrepreneurs such as Frederik Frede, founder of Berlin’s creative digital powerhouse Freunde von Freunden; Mauritius-based Dan Rowden, an aspiring nomadic web developer, designer and a magazine lover; and Dutch entrepreneur and maker of handsome leather brand Mujjo Remy Nagelmaeker.
To introduce a fresh dynamic, we collaborated with Fernando Cobelo, an illustrator based in Turin, through “Ordinary Young Man”. In cultivation of our Enterprise Issue, we are also partnering with two Malaysian standalone brands — Mimpi Kita and Real Material — together with two overseas brands — Orbitkey from Melbourne and The Goods from Los Angeles.
Musotrees Magazine is an independent periodical publication that explores the element of journey and destination from independent travel, personal discoveries and photography that is inspired by Instagram. In today’s modern culture, our world is dominated by digital presence. However, we always crave for the feeling of flipping the pages of a book and inhale the fresh smell of papers. By having a printed magazine, we want to challenge ourselves by sharing our original thoughts behind our travel events through this medium. We are inspired by how Instagram bring people together and create a sense of community. This sparks the idea of Musotrees – to document stories beyond our photo uploads and hopefully serves as a source of inspiration and connection with the readers. Musotrees is developed with real stories from our journeys and most of the photos were captured using our own smartphone. The name Musotrees has no outright definition. It is derived from a combination of two words between muso and trees. These two interests initiated Musotrees and decided to be kept as the magazine title. Based in Kuala Lumpur, we aspire to connect with domestic and international readers. We also aim to engage with those who are interested in travel, photography, culture, places as well as anyone who likes independent magazine.
