Umber is more than a magazine, it’s a community. A community at the forefront of innovation and pioneers of trends, the influencer’s influencers.

HIGHLIGHTING THE CREATIVE NUANCE OF DISTINCTIVE PEOPLE THROUGH PRINTED MEDIA, GLOBALLY.

About

Umber Magazine is “the creative thinker’s graphic journal,” an Oakland, California-based printed publication that focuses on creative culture and visual arts from the perspective of black & brown people. In every release, our content is curated around a theme with an inspiring group of contributors from across the globe. Umber is more of a coffee table art book than traditional magazine.

Launched via Kickstarter in the summer of 2017, Umber provides an engaging print media experience and complementary events that form tangible relationships and deeper connections within our growing community.

Umber Magazine is sold in select bookstores, magazine shops and museums. You can also purchase it online.
