How we help magazine publishers
We can bring a wide range of resources to bear to help you thrive
We can provide web sites, new revenue streams, print redesigns, print production software, editorial training, advertising training, management consulting and quality outsourcing services for our magazine clients.
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 magazine-length stories with ease and allows you to make each story look different, choosing appropriate packaging of sidebars, graphics, maps and breakouts.
As a leading design firm, we can also provide an attractive and unique design for you.
Our software is easy to learn and use and we can provide for all of your digital IT needs.
We've led more than 80 magazine redesigns, mostly for regional and city magazines but also travel guides, niche magazines and association publications.
Our redesigns typically involve rebranding, new typography and colors, rebooking and also content changes. We often get involved in staffing, technology and workflow changes as well. Our goal in any redesign is to upgrade the content and usability for readers and also break down any barriers to success for the staff.
A magazine redesign typically takes from three to nine months. 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 are often able to increase circulation, lower churn and increase engagement.
