DAYBREAK Magazine is a print publication and media co. focusing on creatives in the outdoors.
DAYBREAK is creator owned and operated. We are a small, independent team putting creators and the outdoors above everything else.
An artist’s relationship with the outdoors is so often overlooked, and is so often the driving force behind their creative mentality. Whether a photographer or painter, surf board shaper or athlete, or writer or musician, we dive deeper into this relationship to uncover the individuality and personality behind everyone’s creative processes.
To date, DAYBREAK has released 4 books accounting for nearly 1,000 pages of created and curated work. Over the 80+ stories we’ve published, we’ve touched on subjects ranging from artists and designers who blend traditional iconology with their cultural roots, musicians who’s healing and creative journeys rely on the empty lands around them, surfers and athletes re-imagining what it looks like to be a professional in their field, to photographers who find simplicity in the complex landscapes of mountains and oceans, as well as silence in chaotic cityscapes.
There’s a shared essence between the grit of creatives and the grit of the pages of print media. As one of our favorite creatives, Andrew James Peters, said to us, “Magazines smell so much better than the internet.” Art is not meant to be mindlessly looked at on a screen for half a second and forgotten about. Art is meant to be digested, to be felt—physically and emotionally, and to live a life longer than a single moment. DAYBREAK started as a way to show our work beside the works of creatives we respect on the coffee tables of our loved ones. Since then a lot has changed, but that initial idea is still present. Our hope is that the stories we share and the books we create are as relevant and capturing to generations down the road as they are to someone flipping through them today.
