Dumbo Feather is not your average magazine,
we are a print and online publication with a
social mission to inspire change.
Each quarter our print publication
features long-form conversations with five
extraordinary people.
We scour the globe to find people living with
passion and purpose, across science, politics,
fashion, food, environment, literature and the
arts. Whether they’ve touched millions, or just
those around them, what unites them is their
passion. We take the time to get to know these
people, and ask them to tell us their stories.
More and more people are seeking
meaningful content that educates, inspires
and nourishes. Unlike conventional media, we
publish conversational style features, explore
innovative ideas, projects and people from all
over the world.
Dumbo Feather also has a strong social and
environmental mission. We are part of the
Small Giants family of companies. Small Giants
is an investment house with a difference,
investing in businesses that have a positive
social and environmental impact.
Dumbo Feather is also proud to be a founding
Australian certified B Corporation. B Corp
certification is for businesses who are
redefining success in business.
With superb image quality, highly ethical
publication values and award-winning, often
radical art direction, the final result is a
publication that is as beautiful as it is smart—
every issue is a gift.
Pass it on,
With love,
Berry Liberman

Our Content
Each quarter, Dumbo Feather
presents five long form interviews
with people who are doing
extraordinary things within their
The community section within the
publication brings Dumbo Feather to
life. Laid out as a photo gallery, this
section highlights where Dumbo
Feather and our 1960s Airstream have
been, and what our partners have been
doing. Featured in the first 10 pages
of the publication, it is a great way to
showcase the different touchpoints
of Dumbo Feather.
In the first third of the publication,
Dumbo Feather presents short pieces
of writing that compliment the
feature interviews.
These sections break up the feature
interviews to provide readers with
another reading and writing style and
to allow advertising to seamlessly flow
through the layout of the magazine.
Each issue covers a profile of a
historical figure and their extraordinary
impact. Captured in a brief biographical
form, this profile reminds us to
appreciate the past as a way to make
positive changes to our future.
This is a booklet lift out often inserted
into the magazine. We sometimes
forget how many people have lived,
loved and died before us. They have
grappled with suffering, shifted
morality, created revolutions and
breathed in the beauty and sheer
extraordinariness of being
alive. This section is dedicated to
collective memory, to the wisdom
of our world. Sometimes the wheel
doesn’t need to be reinvented,
just remembered.

makes a statement about your brand’s
values and philosophy.

It is perfectly bound and often likened
to both books and magazines,
affectionately earning it the term,
‘mook’. With long-form interviews

conversations and bite-sized editorial
that links to some of the extraordinary
ideas, stories and individuals that
are covered.
Together with the beautiful
photography commissioned globally
and artwork by local Australian artists,
the pages of Dumbo Feather are filled
with inspiration that is both culturallyrelevant and timeless.
Often referred to as a reference guide
for life, each edition features advertising
that shares its editorial values: to live
with passion and purpose.
