Ryan and Tina Essmaker are the kind folks behind The Great Discontent, a beautiful magazine based in New York City. The online magazine features interviews with creatives from a variety of disciplines—including many of our designer friends—and focuses on themes of beginnings, creativity, and risk. Now, The Great Discontent is printing its first issue via Kickstarter.

Since its debut in 2011, The Great Discontent has inspired readers all over the world. Now, TGD is reaching out to that community, not only to help make a magazine, but in doing so, to build a foundation for the future.

About their Kickstarter Project

The Great Discontent Magazine, Issue 1, will be a beautiful way to preserve some of the content TGD has previously featured online. The magazine will be a gorgeous, full colour piece around 240 pages and will feature 15 interviews with individuals who have also taken leaps, including Sara Blake, Scott and Vik Harrison of charity: water, James Victore, Zack Arias, Elle Luna, Ike Edeani, Debbie Millman, Joshua Davis, and more! Select interviews will include updated images and commentary from the interviewees.

About The Great Discontent


All Rights to The Great Discontent

Ryan and Tina Essmaker are the husband-and-wife team behind The Great Discontent (TGD), the online magazine featuring interviews on beginnings, creativity, and risk. In August 2011, the pair cofounded TGD as a side project to fulfill their desire to work together outside of their traditional day jobs. Since then, they’ve published 117 interviews with individuals from a variety of creative disciplines, reached readers in over 170 countries, and launched the online film-based series, Two Minutes with TGD. In January 2014, Ryan and Tina took the leap and left their day jobs to focus on The Great Discontent and other content-related projects via No Little Plans, their creative studio based in New York City.

Their work has been featured around the web on Mashable, 37signals' Signal vs. Noise, 99U, Communication Arts, .Net Magazine, Daring Fireball, A List Apart, Seth Godin’s blog, Lifehacker, and Quipsologies by UnderConsideration.
