Good news of the day: FIRST Magazine is back on the web

posted on February 9th, 2010 by in Article

Believe or not, FIRST Magazine – Jamaica’s number one magazin – is back online.

I assisted (yea, blame them Kingstonians for the new seen. site still being under construction) in transforming the site from a very magazine-ish look to a regular blog layout and I’m happy to see the FIRST crew putting out Jamaica-related hi-quality content on a regular basis again.

For their launch, they e.g. spotted former Miss Jamaica Cindy Wright looking good wearing Agent Provocateur’s Spring 2010 collection on her hips and bust as well as a pretty big snake on her shoulders.

They also added a nice Google maps feature to their site which allows you to browse FIRST’s stories by location, and they marked their spots on Facebook and Twitter.

PS: If you know anybody at either Heineken, Converse, Red Stripe, Vice, The Fader or the JTB (just to name a few) – tell the people to finally pour some money on the people behind the mag. There’s still no better on-ground media outlet reflecting upon modern life in Jamaica and the Jamaican diaspora. Team seen. and Vanity Fair say so.
