Welcome! We believe...


Style is Personal.

SCROLL DOWN

Welcome! We believe...


Style is Personal.

Style is A WAY OF BEING

Liner Magazine is a quarterly, independent magazine dedicated to personal style in all things. The theme varies each issue, but the general idea is to explore personal style--not just in appearance, but in life.

Unique Editorials

Our editorials are a bit out of the norm, more stylized and tuned into an individual style instead of showcasing trends.

Girl Power

Most of our contributors are women and Liner is a woman-owned business. We believe women should shape their own looks, their style, their lives.

Going Deeper

Our writers go deep into their own psychological and emotional journeys, revealing hardships, wins and life-changing circumstances that have lead to their personal style.

Style Over Fashion


Style can't be bought.

Photographers

Our photographers aren't leering old men using a shoot as an excuse to get close to ladies. We seek out and accept submissions from people with vision, ideas, perspective, and overall badass vibes. Most of our photographers are women, a rare thing in the magazine world.

MODELS

Our models aren't just pretty faces; they're amazing artists in their own right setting out to change the world. They're not perfect, either: we want to show the quirks and individualism of people, and our models are the definition of individuals. We feature people of all walks, shapes, sizes, ages, colors!

TEAM

We don't have a traditional staff, meaning that our content comes from a wide array of artists. In this sense, we really do act as "collaborators" rather than co-workers. Each issue, a pool of 15-20 ever-changing contributors create the visual content for the magazine. Our editor in chief and founder, Kelly Searle, creative directs each issue.

Honesty Over Perfection


We believe in abandoning perfection in favor of realness and uniqueness.

contributors

Our contributors come from all over the world, giving a glimpse into their personal stories, trials and triumphs. Most of our contributors are women, and we have people ranging from 7- to 92-years-old contributing to our magazine. We've had covers shot by students, editorials by 17-year-olds from rural Russia, 50-year-old fishermen submitting their life's photojournalistic work. Everyone we work with has a unique voice, photography perspective, makeup style or design aesthetic. Perfection is unattainable; imperfection is human and original--our contributors believe this and it shows.

Courage Over Tradition


No one ever changed the world by thinking the same way everyone always has.

Don't get us wrong; we love magazines. Almost every kind of magazine, actually. But, there's something missing. Where are the women photographers? Where are unknown talents being exposed? Where are stories about perseverance and the struggles that come with being a creative person? To us, all that glossiness, perfection and trend-driven stuff is beautiful, but somewhat hollow. 

At Liner, we're striving to dig deeper. We're not afraid to show student work. We're not afraid to interview people who only have 5 Twitter followers. For us, magazines are about flipping open the pages to dream and connect.

Fame is not a pre-requisite for talent. Artists are all around us--passing us on the sidewalk, working on a fishing boat off the Florida keys, at home raising children, in the streets of Compton...art thrives in the most unexpected places, and we like to go there. 

Throughout history, people have sat down to read magazines. On those pages lies a visual story of our culture, our times, our lives. We want to use that format to try something new: bring that connection deeper, make it more personal, and really show our readers something they can relate to. 

When you flip open our pages, we want you to be a part of our collective dream, our crazy journey, our oddball style. We want you to be transported not to a place of perfection, but a place of honesty and humanity, and get inspired by others' pioneer spirits. Our goal is that our readers see a little of themselves in our magazine, and get inspired to strike out on their own and do their own thing, in their own way, and shout it from the rooftops! Hell, even submit it to our magazine!
