About Knock News

The Knock News Magazine was established in March 2007 in Knock, Banffshire, by David Gordon. This filled a gap in the area’s local print media for a quality advertiser/general interest magazine.  David studied Typographic Design at the London College of Printing in 1990 and worked in publishing, gaining invaluable experience of the commercial realities of running a magazine. The Knock News magazine started very ‘organically’ from scratch, with one sheet of black and white paper – no funding, grants or awards!  The magazine slowly increased in size and has continued to grow and become very popular.  There is a dedicated readership and everywhere the KN is distributed it is highly sought after and even collected! As an independent magazine the KN is quirky and original, with no particular standpoint or agenda, apart from aiming to provide high quality writing and photography, with contributions from local and sometimes nationally recognised experts and enthusiasts. There are plenty other magazines out there…the KN is unique amongst them, read it and you will find out why.

About the Editor

David Gordon is the Editor and the Publisher of the KN magazine.
David studied Typographic Design at the London College of Printing and worked in magazine publishing. On moving to Scotland it became apparent to him that there was a gap in this local area for a quality advertiser/magazine, so in 2007 founded the KN magazine (Knock News).  The KN is published in Knock, also home to the Knockdhu distillery and not far from Knock Hill. The magazine is a local /regional interest free magazine, with a high quality of writing and photography and as an ‘indie’ magazine can be less formulaic that its competitors – something appreciated by the readership.
