The Pop Manifesto is a digital magazine, based in New York, USA but was founded in Sydney, Australia. It focuses on counter culture and innovative creatives within the fields of music, fashion and design.[1] Founded by Ilirjana Alushaj and Karl Maier, the pair claim the reason for its inception was to showcase the interesting people and projects they saw around them.[2] The first issue was released in December 2005 and has since built up a reputation for cutting edge design and quirky articles.[3]

In September 2010, Ilirjana Alushaj created a record label under the same name.[4] To date, the label has released Blood Diamonds,[5] Magic Mountain,[6][7] Typical Girls,[8] and Vital Caress.[9]
