The 3 Golden Rules to ‘Making it at Kontrol’

  • Attention to detail is vital.
  • Know the product you want to work on; you would be surprised by how many people I see who have not read the most recent issue. True story.
  • Do no chase status as a goal, you will not show any passion for what you do if that is what drives you.

Inclusive Culture

Kontrol commitment to inclusion is grounded in the shared belief that innovation comes from ensuring a diversity of voices are heard.

    Quick question: Does Diamon Jones still write for you guys? She’s requesting press passes for LA Fashion Week 2016 and I simply want to verify that she’s still associated with Kontrol Magazine. Thanks.
