We're a subscription service with a twist: instead of signing up for a brand, Quarterly users subscribe to an influential person or celebrity they admire, who personally curates mailings 4 times/year. Each mailing also arrives with an letter from the contributor, and a hashtag (e.g. #TIM03) to guide the conversation online.
We feature roughly 40 contributors in a range of fields—Pharrell Williams, Tim Ferriss, and Heather "Dooce" Armstrong are all Quarterly contributors—and are rapidly expanding that roster. Our hope is that anyone browsing our site will find a contributor (or several) who speaks to their interests. The site also has strong gift sales.
Quarterly combines the pleasures of an unplugged, offline experience (when is the last time you got a care package?) with the connectivity of social media (now, you can share tweets and photos of that package with fellow subscribers around the world). Check out http://quarterly.co to see more.
