We are now proud to introduce a monthly edition of Daily Scandinavian, containing all the daily stories plus special offers and much more. We invite all readers of Daily Scandinavian to subscribe for free. Our aim is, as it has always been, to provide good advice on Scandinavian destinations and attractions as well as presenting informative stories about Scandinavian issues and people in an easy and entertaining way. Launching SCANDINAVIAN monthly, we feel like real Scandinavian ambassadors.
Our demographic target group is people with higher education, interested in travel in general, and in particular Scandinavian destinations, history, art, business, food and society. We call us the real Scandinavian ambassadors because to us Scandinavia is a fascinating region as a tourist destination as well as a region of historical interest with a multifaceted culture with high democratic values.
SCANDINAVIAN monthly will bring you information on new travel destinations, the latest in fashion, music and food & drink etc. right into your mailbox every month. Columns emphasizing on business, people, design and much more will hopefully over time make SCANDINAVIAN monthly one of the most read Scandinavian magazines out there.

SCANDINAVIAN monthly is hoping to steer clear of many of the negative stereotypes that perpetuate the media around daily news stories. Editor Tor Kjolberg emphasizes that the magazine is made for “people who are engaged and interested in exploring the world of the Scandinavians and want to be updated on new attractions and accommodation as well as on cultural events and business news.”
SCANDINAVIAN monthly will nevertheless not shy away from tackling contemporary, challenging topics, with the first issue exploring how small Scandinavian hotels and destinations can benefit from a stream of Chinese travelers.

Can its audience commit?
The competition among digital magazines has become tough over time often because of smaller demographic groups or people reading less. SCANDINAVIAN monthly has a big advantage here as the group of people interested in traveling the world is growing and if the subject matter is presented well will embrace a magazine aimed specifically for them.
Our chief designer, Niña Karla Bacos, believes that a digital magazine stands a fighting chance here as this demographic are the most committed and loyal readers. “Most people who like to read, are now choosing to read eBooks or digital magazines. We created SCANDINAVIAN monthly with a neat and modern look to make it easy to read while being pleasing to the eyes,” she says.
Niña Karla Bacos is an experienced graphic designer from the Philippines. She graduated from the well-known Far Eastern University in her country with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts and a major in advertising. She once joined a student competition named ArtPetron and won as a runner up in photography category. She began working as an on-call graphic designer while studying and continuing her career after graduating. After 6 years of working for various local companies, she decided to embark on freelancing in 2019. Today, she has native as well as international clients. As a freelancer, she is expanding her knowledge and familiarizing herself with digital marketing and social media.

“For an extensive period of time I searched for a designer not only experienced in visual design but also with an understanding of digital marketing,” says Kjolberg. “Of the final three candidates only Nina Karla Bacos was well-suited for the task.”
SCANDINAVIAN monthly will have a growing digital presence and is off to a strong start in several platforms, sharing articles on successful businesspeople, artists, influencers to follow and ways to learn about the growing popularity of the Nordic region.
We’re planning to run competitions on social media to drive audience growth, offering hotel stays and Scandinavian gifts to tempt new readers to subscribe.
