MEET THE CREW

Located right in the heart of downtown Savannah, in a second story building on the corner of Bull and Broughton, South magazine's office is always a flutter with action. And whether people visit for a photo shoot or to negotiate a deal, these are the faces in charge of taking care of business.

Michael Brooks, Publisher/Creative Director As Publisher and Creative Director, Michael is the leader of this band of rebels encamped in South's headquarters. Dumbstruck by the richness and vitality of the culture here, he moved to Savannah in 2005 with a mission: He would set about creating the ultimate guide to the people, places and happenings that form the unique fabric of modern southern life. Today, that idea has taken life through the pages of South. In only its first year of publication, the magazine has captured a strong and growing audience, doubling subscriptions and quadrupling newsstand sales since its inception. Of course, the seeds of this success were planted during the 90's as Michael followed a determined journey from Ringling School of Art and Design graduate to freelance graphic designer to publisher of the award-winning Albany magazine based in his hometown of Albany, GA. Albany's success brought Michael recognition, landing him a chair on the board of the Magazine Association of Georgia from 2000-2003 and numerous professional opportunities. Happily, he and his wife Frankie followed their hearts right to South.
