The most noteworthy magazine launch in recent years. The successful magazine Harper’s BAZAAR, founded in 1867, has finally been released on the German print market. We developed the entire first issue.
Suddenly things got cramped in our office. We put together a complete editorial department with Margit J. Mayer at the helm (previously at TASCHEN and AD) to create the first issue of a magazine that would be worthy of Harper BAZAAR’s proud history.
To design the first issue’s look we hired Mirko Borsche, one of Germany’s most distinguished art directors (Bureau Mirko Borsche). The concept: opulence and many self-produced stories.
Not only did we oversee the establishment and running of the editorial side of BAZAAR.de, we also set up their Facebook account.
For the very first German issue of Harper’s BAZAAR we produced a beauty spread with the stunning Daria Werbowy in Paris. The glowing images were captured by Mark Abrahams with Dagmar Murkudis in charge of production. Beauty editor Franziska Marr met Daria just before the shoot for an exclusive beauty talk.
50 km north-east of Paris fashion-stylist Lynn Schmidt and photographer Anthony Maule worked a look of leather, lace and silk to complement the elegant grounds of the Chantilly castle for our first BAZAAR fashion shoot.
This is the most important phase when creating a publication. Together with our clients we decide on what kind of magazine we want to develop. We define the target audience, we find the right tone and voice, and we form the visual concept. Most important of all, we find the best people to put these ideas into practice.Beispiele
We love beautiful magazines, and we know how to make them. That is why we develop new mediaproducts in printed or in digital form, for publishers, agencies and corporations — from the initial concept to the final publishing.
How do you reformat sophisticated magazine content for online media? How do you reach out to your online readership? How do you enhance your social media presence? We have the answer.
Sometimes magazines need a breath of fresh air. We redesign established print media and generate new ideas—to revitalise concepts, editorial content and graphic design.
New input for media products does not necessarily need to be implemented by us. We offer our clients comprehensive consulting services on how to improve their magazine.
From the right cover motif to new distribution strategies, advertising, addressing advertising clients and finding the ideal web solutions—we have heaps of experience in how to market good media products even more successfully.
Layout and design are crucial for a magazine’s success. The visual appearance of a magazine determines whether it is bought at the magazine stand or not. Finding the right style and optimum balance between modern and traditional elements is an art that only few designers have mastered. We work with the best in the business.Beispiele
The days of one-way communication—from magazine to reader—are over. Modern media consumers like to feel engaged and want to get connected with editors and like-minded people on Facebook or other interactive websites. But above all, readers want to be entertained on a daily basis.Beispiele
A magazine stands and falls with its editors. This is where the content is developed, the right tone and voice are found and the concept is brought to life. Our greatest advantage is our enormous flexibility. Within a few weeks we can put together a team of top-notch editors to work on an issue, either at our office or directly with our clients.Beispiele
Photography has become increasingly important over the last few years. The photo editor knows which style best suits the magazine and which photographer is best for the assignment. The job of a photo editor is to find the relevant images in stock photo databases and social networks—images that truly captivate.Beispiele
Fashion, food, living and beauty topics need one thing above all—the right look. We work with top-notch models, location scouts, stylists and photographers. We are proud of our many photo productions that have caused a major stir.Beispiele
Fast, flexible and creative work is only possible when there is somebody who manages all activities of the project. This is the job of the Managing Editor. The Managing Editor communicates with the clients, coordinates the workflow and monitors the production schedule.Beispiele
Managing sales is not just about considering how a magazine is displayed at the newspaper stand. For us, sales means how the magazine finds its way to its readers. This also includes how we approach the cover design, the right pricing strategy, the most suitable sales channels and the most appropriate digital formats.Beispiele
Magazines are supposed to provide high-quality entertainment, but they must also be successful at magazine stands and with advertising clients at the same time. What sets us apart from other agencies is that we keep an eye on this aspect right from the onset of production, and work with all our expertise towards the economic success of the project.Beispiele
