Techmog is no ordinary magazine. We’re an ever growing network of engineers, programmers, designers and entrepreneurs across London. We’re a place for founders to share their startups. We’re an opportunity to meet London’s brightest people. And we’re a means to test the latest tech before anyone else.
Contributors are welcome to post once a week, once a year, or just once. If you think it’s something you’d like to do let us known in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Techmog covers three areas which follow the journey of creation from design to production through to business development.
Conceptualisation, design, prototyping and how-to’s.
2. The journey of an entrepreneur
Insights from founders, pivotal moments of a startup. This can be in the form of an interview or a personal account.
3. Analysis of a product
A deep look into its workings, design and usage. A study of materials, electronics, user-experience (software and hardware). Products are put to the test. A new Arduino shield is used to build something with, for example.
Covering Pre-Launch Products
Techmog receives a number of press releases and we actively seek out pre-launch startups in London. All of these products are listed on our Trello board, along with just-launched crowdfunding campaigns and handmade projects. Contributors are free to pick and choose from here.
The Process of Posting
New writers must register and then login. We’ll then approve you as a contributor which will allow you to submit articles. After submission we’ll add the necessary meta data and push it live. All submissions are automatically added to a queue to be posted on our social accounts. We’ll also manually seed it out to our other traffic sources and in our monthly newsletter.
Writers may supply a title and header image, but it isn’t required. If they do choose to we recommend following these pointers we’ve found to be effective.
- Be descriptive, pique interest, be clear
- 3 – 10 words
- ‘How to..’, ‘How we..’, ‘Review of..’, ‘We made..’ all do well
- High resolution
- Height no smaller than half its width
- Ideally an original photograph
- Stay away from pure white backgrounds and computer generated models
