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 in our DNA. After long careers getting inky fingers working on a range of leading newspapers, I guess you’d expect nothing less.
So, in addition to our headline-grabbing PR work, here’s what’s been keeping us off the streets lately in the world of design and layout.
First up, it’s the latest edition of Colmore Life magazine produced for Colmore BID and it’s a belter.
We’ve tried to add a sprinkling of spring to the front cover circular montage (designed with the BID’s circular logo in mind).
Inside, there’s all the Business District’s movers and shakers, dining news, people and places, health and wellbeing and property announcements – with a look at the rise and rise of co-working spaces (from one of which this overview is being typed).
Hunt down a copy in a Colmore Business District bar, restaurant, office reception area, or at Snow Hill station. You can also download the digital version on the Colmore BID website.
COLMORE BID ‘PROGRESS’ ANNUAL REPORT
Staying with Colmore BID and we were asked to produce its Annual Report with a brief to ‘try something different’ (we love such an instruction!)
The 12-page publication features a semi-circular die-cut front page and a showstopping skyline picture taking out three folded pages at the rear. It certainly catches the eye.
Content features all the latest initiatives the BID is leading across the District, to maintain its reputation as a great place to work, visit and invest. Read it online here.
BIRMINGHAM BUSINESS PARK ‘OUR COMMUNITY’
Next up it’s Birmingham Business Park’s seasonal ‘Our Community’ magazine, which talks about the internationally-renowned companies based at the bustling Business Park along with BBP’s packed diary of wellbeing, food and charity events.
A pleasing aspect to Our Community is that the first edition was so well received we were asked to double its pagination.
Like Colmore Life, we were feeling spring-like when deciding on the cover image. Can someone tell the weather gods to keep up?
