PRESENT Issue 3 – Reboot

Select Cover

PRESENT is a magazine about making and self-reflection. It’s about concentrating vs. letting go, and exploring the bliss and struggle of creating. We speak to makers around the world about their path and philosophies in order to demystify the creative process. This is a space for honest conversations about discipline, fear, career paths and confidence. It's for all makers and dreamers. For all dreamers who make. For anyone creating something and challenging themselves on purpose. We share ways of overcoming procrastination and self-doubts that might hold us back from being truly present and tackle our favorite unrealized project.


“The word REBOOT rings in my head every day. To reboot is to be aware of what you need and act on it. To reboot is to stand up again, to fail, to learn, to try again. To reboot is to brush off the past, commit to the moment, and simply begin again.”
