The Great Discontent (TGD) is a magazine featuring interviews on beginnings, creativity, and risk. Cofounded by Ryan & Tina Essmaker, TGD launched online in August 2011 and has grown to include a print counterpart, a short film series, and other content-related projects and collaborations. In January 2014, they decided to embrace risk and shake things up. They simultaneously quit their day jobs to focus on The Great Discontent and launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for their first printed issue. After a nail-biting 30-day campaign, the TGD community helped raise enough money to take the magazine to print. The duo began working on the magazine immediately, teaming up with Brooklyn-based designer Frank Chimero of Another to assist with editorial design and art direction.
