It really is a gem.
Part business, part design, part culture, part international news = Quartz. They publish a news briefing at 5am every morning that I get in my email inbox, and if there’s a link that catches my eye I head to the website to read more.
Here’s what the Quartz about page says:
“Quartz is a digitally native news outlet, born in 2012, for business people in the new global economy. We publish bracingly creative and intelligent journalism with a broad worldview, built primarily for the devices closest at hand: tablets and mobile phones.”
The articles are informative but don’t drag on, they insert graphs to visually represent numbers and figures (very helpful), and they cover a wide variety of topics from current sales in the beverage industry, to the current growing concern over the Zika virus, to how your deodorant is changing your bodies microbes. Informative.
