In the past we’ve rounded up our favourite magazines on Instagram; those accounts that deliver a snapshot of what the magazines are all about. But during our daily thumbing we also like to keep up with the individuals who make these publications; the editors, art directors and publishers who carefully craft an image of what magazine making looks like.

Scroll down for some accounts we always give our heart-shaped likes to…

@agnesiga | Benji Knewman
Agnese Kleina is the editor of Benji Knewman, a magazine from Riga, Latvia, filled with lives that you can read. She packs her profile with all the cool things from her city, plus tees with tongue-in-cheek slogans and other merch from her magazine. Oh, and she has the strongest hat game in the indie publishing world…

@natasha_boguslavsky | Sybaris
Staying on the surrealist theme, Natasha Bugoslavsky is the co-founder of Sybaris, a food magazine from Tel Aviv that re-interprets Israeli culinary culture. We love following her because she has a knack for seeing the funny and weird side of things…

@omarsosabartolome | Apartamento
Omar Sosa is the art director of Apartamento, the magazine that manages to make the messiest flats look glamorous and covetable. His account keeps us updated on the latest in architecture, interiors, and square-shaped bicycles.

@editorialmag | Editorial Magazine
Claire Milbrath is a painter who also makes the brilliant art and fashion title Editorial Magazine. Her account lets us peek at her latest drawings, shines the light on illustrators and other artists they profile in their publication, as well as the awesome merch from the magazine…

@joshuaogden | Justified magazine
Joshua Ogden is one of the founders of Justified, a photography magazine that sources from Instagram. (If you don’t already follow Justified, we highly recommend it for the photographer ‘takeovers’ they do…) Tap the follow button for art shows in London and his killer eye for great photo ops.

Every time my brain says nipples.

@alifewortheating | Drift
Adam Goldberg is the editor of Drift magazine, the travel title that takes coffee as its loose focal point. As you’d imagine, his account is filled with enviable travel destinations and intriguing-looking meals, such as this Oreo and matcha combination…
