Cereal Magazine at UPTOSTYLE
As obsessed followers of minimalism and sophisticated design, we, at UPTOSTYLE are beyond happy to be official stockists of Cereal Magazine.
The aim of Cereal Magazine is to provide readers with experience over information. Sitting down at home after an exhausting day of work and getting immersed in an issue is the best we can imagine. It is the perfect tool to forget about everything and discover a brand new world through the pages.
The primary target audience of the creators was similar people like them. They created the first issue with the inspiration of their own interests, having in mind to share them with the global group of other design-conscious professionals. Of course, the flawless design aroused the interest of many individuals as well.
Though Cereal Magazine design is often connected to Scandinavian style, Rosa and Rich live in Bath and work in Bristol in fact. Therefore, the mix of these two city cultures has an impact on their work too. While Bath represents calmness and consistency, Bristol has youngish, vibrant vibes full of energetic spirits.
The Cereal Magazine layout was hence created to be calm and modern both intentionally and intuitively. These were completed with muted tones and a pared-back, uncluttered and focused approach, forming a minimal timeless design that is often connected to Scandinavian lifestyle for a reason.
In the first years, the founders insisted on visiting each location in person as long as it was sustainable. This made every page come to life and give a lifelike adventure experience to readers. While reading through all the stories, you actually feel like being physically there, talking to the interviewees and touching all masterpieces by yourself.
Besides travelling, art and architecture have an essential role in every issue. We can meet talented architects and artists who share their journey, their ideas, the details of their collection and what inspired them most. Getting to know their art broadens our horizons and gives us the inspiration to look further.
As a complete collection of arts, Cereal Magazine ensures to incorporate literature and poetry into its concept. In this way, those who most identify with the powerful world of words can satisfy their needs with expanded essays and immersive poems too. These are usually connected to a specific culture which opens up another window to the world.
In 2016, Cereal City Guides were released to feature a selection of hidden places in London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Copenhagen. These physical guide books present the must-see locations of the city to visit, stay, eat and drink, illustrated with original photography.
Cereal City Guides are available online too and were updated in 2018 with a selection of interviews with locals, souvenirs to buy, weekend itineraries and extended recommendations of the greatest places.

Is Cereal Magazine available online too?
Yes, online presence has always been important for Rosa and Rich. Though people often think they put emphasize only on print, they are aware of the importance of the digital world. In fact, it has a crucial role in their brand identity, especially because their online readers base is twice as big as the number of print readers.
Since digital is a totally different platform than print, the founders take special care to create content specifically for online. These mostly get published exclusively on their website, while some Cereal Magazines articles get published only in the print issues.
What led the creators to start Cereal Magazine?
Rosa has always had a passion for writing and literature. After working several years, she got back to learning and did her MA in English Literature. She worked for publications and in this way could get familiar with that environment. Then, she met Rich, and they started dreaming about to create a magazine together, which they finally did.
Where does the magazine’s name come from?
The name Cereal comes from Rosa’s passionate love of breakfast cereal both as a child and adult. It means and represents for her the nourishing and feeding of curiosity that everyone has, especially as a playful child. Both the creators found this name is neutral enough to carry the brand’s identity and values throughout its development.
What font does Cereal Magazine use?
When deciding about the most perfect Cereal Magazine font, the creators explored everything to know about how magazines play with the visuality of fonts. The general rule is that large contrasting headlines establish a hierarchy with small text letters that thus form a balanced look on the pages.
This method did not work with Cereal Magazine though – it took away the typical simplicity and calmness of the magazine. The founders needed to come up with a different approach with the smallest amount of type variations possible. As a result, they ended up creating harmony with using 8.5pt serif typeface for copy and 6pt sans serif for credits/captions.
Besides fonts, the creative use of positive and negative space on the pages is also responsible for setting up the hierarchy. Furthermore, the secret of enhanced readability is the ragged edge style of paragraphs and a line added to indicate the end of an article.
