The history of The Week
The Week was created in 1995 by Founding Editors Jeremy O’Grady and Jon Connell. In those days (long before the advent of the internet) most people got their news from one or two favourite papers, missing out on the rich variety of opinion and debate out there.
Noticing a vital gap in the market, Jeremy and Jon got to work. Based in Paddington (from an ex-garage so small that editorial meetings were held on the street) they trawled every news outlet available, stitching together rival sides of the biggest news stories with a small team of journalists.
Despite initial scepticism from critics in the industry, The Week grew in popularity because it gave readers a truly unbiased view of current affairs - something just as valuable today as it was back then.
The art of The Week
Our illustrated covers are part of the heart and soul of the magazine, and may be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of The Week.
The satirical style that has come to effortlessly reflect who we are is created by Howard McWilliam, who has been producing our eye-catching covers for the last thirteen years.
