Lee Taylor

Editor of Flux Magazine /

introduction

Lee is also now the editor of the digital version of the magazine fluxmagazine.com that was launched in 2010. Flux has now gone fully digital.

a culture, arts and fashion title that used to distribute 70,000 copies per issue across the UK and internationally. Established in 1997 by Lee and a co-director. The magazine started out as a 30 page fanzine sold only in Manchester city centre. The online magazine builds on the same quality led ethos of the paper version. We plan to bring our special paper versions of Flux though as we go forward but these will be more like one-off specials as we still love print.
