I AM SO GRATEFUL for the continued support of, and patronage to, Destin Magazine. It has truly been vital to its success. Since 2004, it has been a blessing to have had the opportunity to share the people, places, businesses, events, charities and news of Destin and the surrounding area, via photographs and words, in the pages of Destin Magazine, not to mention how much I have enjoyed working with the individuals involved in every facet of publishing the magazine.

In the interest of continuing to grow personally and professionally, effective August 3, 2013, my company, Papillon Publications, Inc., negotiated to sell and transfer the right to use the trademark, Destin Magazine, to VIP Destin, LLC, a publishing company from Tennessee. This decision was not an easy one for me, but it was made after much thoughtful consideration and prayer. After more than 32 years as a magazine publisher, I feel the need to renew my health and to spend more quality time with my family.

However, I am happy to say that I will still be actively involved with Destin Magazine as Founder & Consultant, as well as, on a freelance basis through Papillon, working with clients for advertising placement and ad design, and as the exclusive contact for inclusion in the popular “People You Should Know” section, in future issues of Destin Magazine.

I will also continue to work through my company on a local and national basis, offering creative design (print and digital), event photography, plus custom publishing services which Papillon has offered since 1981. My company also retains the right to all past issues of Destin Magazine (through the Spring 2013 issue).

I look forward to seeing you soon and would welcome the opportunity to work together on any future marketing, design or publication needs. If interested, you may request more information, including the current media kit for Destin Magazine, by clicking here.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to email me at or visit

Thank you for your continued interest in Destin Magazine and Papillon Publications.

All my best,

Linda Christiansen
