Founded in January 2011, Previous Magazine is an independent digital publication with a focus on technology in both the professional and creative spaces.

Our journalists particularly enjoy writing about how technology enriches and changes lives and workflows, but we equally love to kick back, relax, improve ourselves and have a generally fantastic time.
