Interview With Andrew Frame, Founder Of Citizen

Recently, there have been talks about the death of print media. The digital age is taking over, and it seems as though newspapers will soon be a thing of the past.

But is this such a bad thing? Not necessarily. Digital media has opened up an exciting new world for writers, readers, and advertisers alike. But what does print have to offer?

Andrew Frame is an avid tech entrepreneur. He is also well versed in software programming, a skill he perfected at a young age. A born leader, by the time he turned 15, he had already created his first company which was an internet service provider.

Andrew Frame is the founder of Citizen, an online magazine that focuses on telling stories that are often overlooked in mainstream media outlets.

Why Citizen was created by Andrew Frame

Citizen was created to be a beacon of truth in an increasingly fragmented and cynical media landscape.

I started blogging about the environment in 2005 for a range of publications. In 2010, I moved back to New Zealand from London and took on the editor of New Zealand’s environmental magazine Geo.

In 2013, I set up Citizen with the goal of filling a significant gap in today’s media landscape: a publication that would speak really to the world we live in.

We produce original journalism that offers perspectives often overlooked or ignored by mainstream media outlets and tells stories we are proud to stand behind.

We tell stories not just because they’re important but because they’re powerful because they’re moving or uplifting or heart-breaking or life-affirming or thought-provoking.

Andrew Frame’s vision for the future of newspapers

“It’s a huge, diverse world, and the challenge is to identify what’s most important. When you’re writing an article, it’s not just the headline. It’s not just one paragraph. It’s all these different elements that come together to create a complete story.”


Many people underestimate the power of print media. It has a unique ability to reach people and create emotional connections. Citizen feels that we can use print control to bring people together, inspire them, and give them a sense of community. If we’re going to be printing things in the future, it’s got to be for a purpose. That’s why Citizen exists. Go to this page for more information.
