Dear [RE]TOUCHED Magazine Reader!
When we first explored the possibility of creating a new interactive digital publication, our goal was to deliver the best possible content in an exciting and engaging format. We had the privilege to work with some of the most talented artists from around the world and the distinction of introducing many fast-rising talents to a larger audience as well.
Unfortunately, throughout it all, the infrastructure to publish, distribute, and manage magazine subscriptions fell far short of reasonable expectations, and the constant problems and customer service issues these shortcomings caused forced us to re-evaluate continued publication of [RE]TOUCHED in 2016.
Discontinuing the magazine was a difficult decision, but we believe that dedicating our finite resources to creating new content, products and services will be of greater benefit to a larger cross-section of our readers and community members.
For those who read, subscribed to, and enjoyed [RE]TOUCHED, as well as our amazing contributors – we thank you!
The 2015 issues will be available for purchase on iTunes and Google Play for another month until our publishing agreements expire with both platforms. You can save these issues on your tablets by simply downloading everything you have purchased.
Note that after our app is not supported on iTunes and Google Play, you will not have access to your previously purchased issues if they were not physically downloaded to you iPad or Android tablet.
All of our back issues, however, will continue being available on our websites in the PDF format. Most of the material in our magazine isn’t time sensitive, so Issue 1 is just as beneficial and relevant as Issue 5.
We have exciting plans for 2016 and look forward to helping our readers and community members with their creative education in new and inspiring ways.
