Oi Polloi, a Eulogy


About the Blog

Move on Up was founded in Summer 2013 as a journalistic and creative outlet for two mates from Middlesbrough. Move on Up aims to report on the happenings in the world of Modernism, a solitary, personalised voice in the sea of technology driven, X-Factor loving, Essex adoring media that is journalism today. From reviewing some of the best up-and-coming artists to showcasing clothes we really dig and writing about those that really inspire us, we like to think we've got a good mix that will keep readers coming back for more!
