Perediza is a print magazine and digital platform made by a group of young creatives, graduates, and artists. Our main team is located in London.
The magazine under the name 'perediza' aims to make people question their surroundings and the world they experience today.
Our magazine tackles topics such as the cultural industry, mental health, climate change, media & culture, the future of art and fashion, etc. We have four main categories in the following order: climate change, art, style, life.
We have writers, artists, photographers, and other contributors from 7 countries and 14 nationalities.
Perediza includes mixed media and a refined voice for and of the new generation. Our goal is for this magazine to not only speak of London and mark it as a significant cultural and youthful metropolis but to expose and connect it internationally with other global and diverse communities.
We signify role models that are not only celebrities or influencers but rather creative and brilliant minds that would inspire young audiences in the right direction.
It's time to reshape media into an interdisciplinary form in order to transcend information in intellectual and cultural ways that are translatable to the masses.

our logo is a reinterpretation of the sibyl ‘persicha’ from Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling painting. The Persian sibyl was the first of all sibyls and is depicted by her wise features and secretive posture. Michelangelo masterfully depicts an aura of mystery around her and a delicate portrayal of her immense focus in her oracles.
Using her as the symbol of perediza and the cover was to portray how the magazine is fluid in time. It speaks of the future yet recalls the past. History is apparent in every article and interview yet each piece is written and constructed by young people who will make our future. This juxtaposition is exactly what made us choose persicha and modernize her.
Unlike traditional or other modern/indie magazines, perediza does not use models, celebrities, or editorial work for its cover. Instead, we have an expansion of our logo. The faceless wisdom is exactly what leads one to open the pages of perediza in the first place. A desire for more knowledge. The mystery can only be revealed by opening the book itself.
