Ibrahim Nehme is the editor-in-chief of The Outpost magazine. Two years ago, he quit the advertising world and founded The Outpost. Published from Beirut and dubbed “a magazine of possibilities,” The Outpost is a quarterly print publication that aims to ignite a socio-cultural renaissance in the Arab world by inspiring its readers to explore a world of possibilities. Soon after its launch in September 2012, the publication was considered to be one of the most successful independent magazine launches in the Arab world and nominated for Best New Magazine and Best Magazine Design at the Magpile Magazine Awards, and later named by the Guardian as a successor to the Economist. Ibrahim is in charge of the magazine’s editorial direction and manages a diverse team of thinkers, writers and creatives from across the region.
