Our Love Letter to the Philippines

GRID Magazine is an indie magazine based in the Philippines, made by travelers for travelers. We tell stories from around the country, rooted in the experience of people and place and highlighting the diversity of Filipino culture. Like all great loves, we want to know the Philippines’ entire story and be a part of it.

Since 2014, GRID Magazine has grown into a respected name in local and travel media, winning awards in writing and design from the Henry Ford Awards and adobo Design Awards.

Our stories are available in print, digital, and video formats. We also collaborate with select brand partners through our creative media company, Off the Grid Media.
