"The printed magazine is not dead. Not yet anyway. We still love paper"
In more recent years Penmedia has designed and art-directed many magazines in all sorts of fields. We are just as comfortable following an existing visual style as starting with a blank page and re-designing an existing title from scratch.
With more recent developments in the world of digital magazines, we are now able to design and produce titles across print and digital, which more and more of our clients desire.
We were involved at the launch of this quarterly title which is given away free with the Evening Standard
