In an interview with Dr. Samir "Mr. Magazine™" Husni, renowned for his influence in the global publishing industry, Kade Krichko, founder of Ori, discusses their unconventional approach to travel journalism. Despite challenges posed by the digital age, Krichko believes in the potential for independent magazines like Ori to thrive, focusing on authentic, local perspectives rather than traditional travel narratives.

"Ori is an antidote to typical travel magazines, focusing on stories from the source—local perspectives rather than parachuting in and out of destinations."

Ori, derived from "origin," embodies the magazine's essence, representing originality and direction. Publishing biannually, Ori aims to encourage deep engagement in an era of fast-paced digital consumption. Beyond the magazine, Ori offers merchandise and curated trips, aiming to foster a community around the brand.

Reflecting on challenges, Krichko highlights the difficulty of conveying Ori's innovative approach to potential audiences. Yet, he finds fulfillment in positive feedback, especially through Ori's unique creative grant program supporting emerging artists and writers.

Looking ahead, Krichko envisions expansion and global outreach for Ori, driven by his passion for the project and the excitement it brings. As for Dr. Husni, his expertise and influence in the magazine industry are widely recognized, making him a pivotal figure in shaping the future of publishing.
