Our Mission Statement.
In early 2017, we decided to focus our energy into expanding our publishing program, and put out an open call, which yielded nearly one thousand submissions. That project became our first book, AFTERMATH: Explorations of Loss & Grief. As printers and designers, we feel that publishing is about the beautiful moment when thoughts, hopes, and dreams come together. It’s about the freedom for people to tell their own stories.
With our intimate knowledge of the printing process, we can turn a blank sheet of paper and some ink into a tool, a gift to be shared and passed down. In our new publishing venture, we’re especially excited to use our skills as printers to make the books that we have always wanted to see. Because we have complete control of the process, we can make beautifully designed books while making sure that they stay economically accessible.
The name Radix comes from the Latin root of the word radical, which means to get to the root. We strive to stay true to this concept by publishing stories that get to the root of the human experience. We want to share work that explores the nuances of life, and asks the reader to step outside of their own experience.
These instances where we allow ourselves to be sensitive to other perspectives are the ones that help us realize that we’re more similar than different. We all struggle, love, yearn and hurt—it may look different for each for us, but at the end of the day these are the things that connect us and make us human. Radix Media is committed to sharing stories that reflect these experiences, and building a platform for the voices that often go unheard.
