the origins of slow

SLOW originally started out as Going Somewhere Slowly in 2012, as a travel publication by Anje Rautenbach. In 2019,  she joined Digital Shelf as a partner and alongside its founder, Johann M Smith, the publication was reimagined, redeveloped, and relaunched in 2021 as go somewhere SLOW — or just SLOW in short.
