The Block Magazine
Susan Falk, Editor-in-Chief of The Block Magazine, sat down with Loaded Bow to reflect on her journey to her current position and the direction she is leading the magazine. She expressed so much gratitude for where her career has led her, and Gen and I left thoroughly inspired by her story and her passion.
Susan seeks to inspire. The Block is poised to inspire fresh faces to peer into elements of unseen design, gaze at innovative architecture and really admire all the glam and goodness that fashion and photography can offer. The Block is an overall feel-good and informative journey through all things tasty and new and it even gets us in that soft spot that’s always secretly on the lookout for something a little hip! “There’s a hunger in this city for design driven stories. This is evident in the popularity of events like Movers and Shapers currently on at the Vancouver Museum. People are looking to see what is cool and inspiring and not so mainstream. The Block reaches a demographic that magazines like House and Home and Chatelaine just can’t reach because they are too broad.” says Susan. The key to success has been filling out a niche that was always willing and waiting for this type of magazine. “There’s just nothing really in Canada like this.” Susan says.
Gen and I took Susan to coffee to get the details on how to move from a couch in Winnipeg to one of the most rewarding jobs in design journalism.
