Take a magazine redesign to completion and launch in less than two weeks.
SportBusiness had been working on a rebrand and redesign of their monthly magazine, SportsBusiness Review, but were unable to get the launch issue completed internally. Endeavour was brought in by the Chief Product Officer, Matt Horsford, as a safe pair of hands to help get the magazine launched on time. We’d known and worked with Matt many times before and we were chuffed that he trusted us with such a crucial project.
The new issue was still in a bare bones state when we took it on, with sections of content needing to be written, sourced and created and a range of adverts needing to be inserted and balanced throughout. There was also a supplement to create a new cover for and we had to take into account its placement in the middle of the magazine and how that would affect the flow of articles.
We helped complete the redesign and rollout of the new issue in 11 days, which was only possible with great communication and SportsBusiness’s deep level of trust in Endeavour to get the job done right.
