FIRST STORY: 2011
Our story begins long before Triskele Press became a brand. Beforehand, it was Azure Lorica .COM – a blog supporting festivals and live shows within LA County. We posted about new members into the organization, and soon started azure-lorica.org for all of our legal information.
SECOND WIND: 2014
Independent Vloggers came to our attention. They produced shows, and they loved attending conventions and festivals. We made room for them in our organization. In exchange for Press Passes, we gained showcase pieces to place our brand on YouTube.
BRAND IMPROVED: 2016
Changes occurred when Triskele Press founder, Eugene Cordell, gave the title of Chief Editor to Azure Lorica Foundation’s CEO, Stefanie Warner.
She brought to the group’s attention that a majority of online users are female. Females are indiscriminate to reading, and self publishing a magazine would benefit the brand. Hence, Triskele Press gradually improved into the new brand identity – leaving remnants of its old community in the search bar, and broadening towards writers and artists.
UNEXPECTED RETURN: 2018
Azure Lorica had gone through a complete makeover, thanks to the political climate of 2017. Their mission had the Board of Directors strip every program, active at the time, until further notice. This included Triskele Press, Ninja-Con, and Drift Plume. Due to the decision, all programs could not act individually, as separate entities, and hence the return of azure-lorica.com, or Azure Lorica Magazine.
