We are the only company that can help you grow your readership, revenue and audience in print and online.

We provide dynamic web sites, truly new revenue streams, print redesigns, cost-effective print production software, energizing editorial and advertising training, management consulting and high quality outsourcing services for our newspapers.

Web sites

Our web CMS is the most flexible and dynamic platform in the industry.  You can emphasize different stories and visuals, package ads with editorial content, add or subtract ad positions and create new landing pages with just a few mouse clicks.

Our platform handles all kinds of content with ease and allows you to make each story look different, choosing appropriate layouts and packaging of sidebars, graphics, maps and breakouts.

As a leading design firm, we can also provide an attractive and unique reader-centric web site design for you.

Our software is easy to learn and use and we can provide for all of your digital IT needs.

Redesigns

We've led more than 600 newspaper redesigns for newspapers of all sizes.

Our redesigns go way beyond changing fonts and colors. They typically  involve rebranding, creating more efficient workflows and a shift to a more user-centric orientation. With fewer stories in the paper, we will give your newsroom a new focus on creating content that gets read. We also often get involved in staffing, technology and planning changes. Our goal in any redesign is to upgrade the quality and relevance of content and improve usability for readers while breaking down any barriers to success for the staff.

A weekly redesign typically takes from three to nine months while a daily project can take six to 12 months. Why so long? We can redesign a newspaper in a few weeks but the key is making sure it's the right design for your market and that your staff can execute the plan. A redesign without re-energized content and other product improvements is like painting a wall without doing the proper preparation. It won't last. It won't solve any problems.

We do lots of prototyping and involve the staff and management team very deeply throughout the process. Rather than presenting a finished concept, we do the redesign in phases and gather feedback and get direction at each stage. We want this to feel like your redesign, not one outsiders imposed by outsiders.

We also provide in-depth staff training on whatever topics you need to execute the redesign.

Readers love our redesigns. We always increase readership and reader satisfaction and we are often able to increase circulation, lower churn and increase engagement.

New revenue streams

We can help you build your print and digital revenues with classified, marketplace, directory and paid content platforms. We can also provide training for your ad staff and high-end agency services. We can grow your classified revenue again with a classified redesign.

Creative outsourcing

We can provide high-level design and production services for special sections, niche products and magazines. We can help you upgrade your house ads and marketing. And we can serve as your ad agency, creating ads that work for your best advertisers.

Print production CMS
