It’s been a busy few weeks at Edwin Ellis with a flurry of fine publications rolling off the presses to be distributed quite literally as I type. You probably know by now that we LOVE producing magazines, brochures and newsletters for our clients. Don’t get us wrong, we love creating digital content, too. But print’s [Continue Reading]
Edwin Ellis Creative Media is a public relations and business magazine publishing agency founded by a former newspaper editor and an award-winning journalist. We know what reporters are looking for and what readers are interested in. We know the stories that make news editors open their emails and when to (or, more importantly, when not to) bother them with a news release. Trust us, we’ve been there and this insider knowledge is worth its weight in gold.
We rely on a trusted network of experienced journalists and photographers who create engaging articles and striking imagery.
Our magazine publishing service includes all editorial planning, interviews, article writing, sub-editing, photography, page design and print production. We produce regular publications for several regional organisations and can redesign and refresh local and national titles.
Why not release your own mini magazine to keep your clients or members updated? It’s a powerful way of sharing your news.
“Stacey did a great job generating media coverage for my collaboration with the Birmingham Cathedral Choir. It’s really useful knowing there’s a quality PR company based in Birmingham.”
“Stacey and PR associate John Simpson have formed a formidable, well-connected team who unearth strong, relevant stories and secure extensive news coverage across a range of platforms for the Great Run Company’s Birmingham events. We have nothing but praise for their approach and are delighted with the results.”
“Stacey has been managing our PR account for the past two years and we find him a hugely valuable resource for our business.
With our focus on promoting our town centre, Stacey manages to impress each time with new innovative angles to showcase our businesses. Stacey works well with a diverse range of project areas from local community stories to the wider economic issues, all delivered with that extra touch of Stacey flair.
I would recommend Stacey to any businesses who are looking for some intelligent PR.”
“Stacey Barnfield did a fantastic job redesigning our magazine. He was there every step of the way, guiding the process and coming up with ideas that often took us in a new direction while always being responsive to and understanding our needs.
“I really appreciated his calm professionalism, clarity, creative flair and commitment to the project. Post launch, he didn’t just walk away but stayed with us to make sure everything was working well.
“The end result is a product that ticked every box and has been universally praised. I couldn’t recommend Edwin Ellis Creative Media highly enough!”
Ok, so you might want to break it down to public relations, internal or external communications, copywriting or, heaven forbid, native commercial content but ultimately, we like to keep things simple: we write words. We're pretty good at it, too.
We can bring life to any subject and make it readable, engaging and in this mobile digital world, shareable. We believe in keeping things simple, jargon-free and always with the reader in mind.
Trust Edwin Ellis Creative Media to get your message across or raise brand awareness with creativity, authority, personality and professionalism.
We understand the power and importance of photography. We take it seriously. Ask any snapper worth their salt and they'll tell you it's an art form. We tend to agree but hate to admit it for fear of day rates going through the roof.
Edwin Ellis Creative Media has spent years working alongside some of the best photographers in the land, who can turn their hand (or snazzy new lens) to any style required. They're a great bunch but crikey they're high maintenance, so let us do the hand-holding so you can sit back and enjoy the stunning results.
Now you're talking. This is in our DNA. We've spent more than 20 years overseeing newspapers, websites, apps and email newsletters. We can write, headline, structure, design and distribute newsletters, books, magazines, newsprint, brochures and leaflets.
It goes without saying we know our standfirsts from our sub-heads; our mastheads from our earpieces and every other bit of page-planning jargon in between. We can do all this online, too, through web content management in numerous systems or blogs to help keep your social media presence ticking along nicely.
Content is king. It always will be as far as we're concerned, but that doesn't mean we're not interested in the aesthetics. Allow Edwin Ellis Creative Media to take care of your graphic design needs in print and online.
Logo design, leaflets, newsletters, stationery… we’ve got them covered. Oh, and you have our word: Brush Script and Comic Sans are strictly OFF LIMITS.
