Rosa Park and Rich Stapleton, Cereal Magazine

Bath, UK

The spa town of Bath, in the southwest of England, isn’t exactly a media hub. But it is beautiful, with its Georgian townhouses and neoclassical collonades, arranged with geometrical precision around the ruins of the old Roman baths. This is where Rosa Park and Rich Stapleton, editor-in-chief and creative director of Cereal magazine, live and work. They launched the magazine in 2011, a year after they began dating, and instead of moving to London they made the bold decision to settle in the city they loved.
Cereal is a travel magazine — though that doesn’t quite sum it up. They publish city guides, and have a million followers on Instagram. Still, that doesn’t do it. In search of a way to explain the magazine, I ask Rosa and Rich to give me an idea of the audience.
