Be part of the new generation of production sweeping Buffalo and Rochester from Rise Collaborative and No Boundaries.

No Boundaries is a 76-page, perfect bound magazine that comes out roughly every six months from the multi-media team at Rise Collaborative. It covers the people and organizations working to improve their neighborhoods and communities alongside the arts, entertainment, fashion, and society, and does so in a voice and style not seen before in our region.


Three newsprint iterations of No Boundaries came out in 2016 and 2017. We’re proud of that work, but it was time to upgrade to something that stopped people in their tracks as soon as they picked it up. Not typical gloss cover, NB utilizes the “soft touch”process from our printers in Cheektowaga NY to give that high-quality feel to the entire cover.
Bonus: Collect issues 4-13, reveal hidden design installed incrementally onto the 1/4” spine each issue.

If WNY is experiencing a renaissance, shouldn’t its publication design standards, too?

The magazine is 76 pages so that we can excite our readers and reward them for putting their phones down with color, space, and thought-out design.

Advertisers own their space.

Articles are read start to finish without a break. This keeps readers from racing past your advertisement to the rest of the article. Instead, ads have designated places between each article where you’ve got our audience’s full attention. This is your space. While we encourage our advertisers to seek the highest quality photos and design for their placements, you’re welcome to say and place anything, in any style (except any imagery or message that attacks a person or group of people).

Our younger audience wants a blend of fun and serious content, mixed with style and flare. We deliver.

It’s all about finding balance and not being known for covering just one or two things. Because we publish only twice per year, we take weeks to perfect our lineup of content and then tap our incredible team of authors, designers, and photographers to create a magazine that is thought-provoking, but also easy to digest.


7,500 copies of No Boundaries will remain free to the public to consume, ensuring you hit a diverse audience of all walks of life, and in call corners of the region including every single neighborhood of Buffalo, every one of its suburbs, as well as Niagara Falls, and all over Rochester’s neighborhoods too. The magazine has subscribers from 13 different states around the country as well and that list continues to grow.
