FACE Magazine Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Jan 18, 2018 11:36AM ● Published by Staff Writer

10 YEARS AND 115 ISSUES LATER

The year was 2008, Lafayette received its first substantial snowfall in years, Hurricane Gustav makes landfall, CNN lists Lafayette as one of the top 30 cities in the US to find a job, and Marcelle Fontenot was named co-anchor of KATC-TV3’s - 5, 6, and 10 o'clock news.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth “Beth” Guillot and a group of friends were planning what would become FACE Magazine, a local publication that would feature and showcase the many successful, inspiring, and talented women of Acadiana.

EACH MONTH Face Magazine is read online throughout the world in countries such as Canada, Mexico, France, United Kingdom, Germany, India, Hong Kong, Philippines, Brazil, Colombia, South Africa, Vietnam, Austria, Bangladesh, Spain, Australia, and although they cannot figure out how or where-FACE has 1 loyal reader in the Russian Federation. 


WITH ITS FIRST ISSUE PUBLISHED in early 2008, FACE quickly gained a loyal following as the community embraced the quality of its content along with the inspiring stories and raw emotion being shared through its cover articles. The stories these women, young ladies, and (yes) one man have (and continue to) unselfishly shared have inspired, educated, and touched the hearts and lives of countless people throughout the region, country and yes, the world. 

According to company president Flint Zerangue, Sr., since 2012, FACE Magazine has donated more than $170,000 in cash and in-kind donations to non-profit and community organizations such as Healing House: Hope for grieving children, Lafayette Education Foundation, Acadiana Symphony Orchestra, LARC’s Acadian Village, Autism Society of Acadiana, Down Syndrome Association of Acadiana, The Oil Center Association, Miles Perret Cancer Services, Susan G. Komen-Acadiana, and the Junior League of Lafayette.  In 2012 the licensing and publishing rights to FACE Magazine were acquired by Face Media Group, of Lafayette. The acquisition was met with some resistance, but loyal advertisers and readers quickly realized that the new ownership was committed to upholding the integrity and original vision of the company. Since that time FACE has experienced tremendous growth with its hyper-local mentality and multi-platform approach to disseminating its content and promoting their incredible advertisers who make it possible for FACE to remain a free publication.

Additionally, FACE has donated time, resources and funding to countless private and public school programs along with granting College Scholarships to winners of its annual FACE Scholastics: High School Arts & Writing Competition.

These are the things we rarely talk about [says Zerangue], but they are important because Acadiana is a special place and its people make up a very unique demographic that is not common in other parts of the country. We clean-up after storms, we help our neighbors, we care about the poor, the sick, the less fortunate, and the future of our children and community. THAT is why FACE continues to feature the most interesting, accomplished, and inspiring women of Acadiana. It’s their stories of overcoming failure, adversity, and misfortune that teach future generations about life and love of community. 

THN AND NOW ~ With 10 years and 115 issues under their belt, FACE is celebrating its Anniversary by revisiting a few of their past Cover Girls to see what they’ve been up to since they last graced the cover. In the coming months, FACE will continue to revisit past members of their cover royalty and looks forward to sharing those stories with you.
