Take a look at this ad found in this month’s Glamour regarding CE’s first love – Magazines. Can you tell which letter in the above picture belongs to which magazine? If so, you love magazines as much as CE does…
The Internet is exhilarating. Magazine are enveloping. The Internet grabs you. Magazines embrace you. The Internet is impulsive. Magazines are immersive. And both media are growing.
Barely noticed amidst the thunderous Internet clamour is the simple fact that magazine readership has risen over the past give years. Even in the age of the Internet, even among the groups one would assume are most singularly hooked on digital media, the appeal of magazines is growing.
Think of it this way: during the 12 year life of Google, magazine readership actually increased 11 percent.
What it proves, once again, is that the new medium doesn’t necessarily displace an existing one. Just as movies didn’t kill radio. Just as TV didn’t kill movies. An established medium can continue to flourish so long as it continues to offer a unique experience. And, as reader loyalty and growth demonstrate, magazines do.
Which is why people aren’t giving up swimming, just because they also enjoy surfing.
Here’s the Breakdown on the Image:
“M” from <em>Time</em>, “A” from <em>Vanity Fair</em>, “G” from <em>Rolling Stone</em>, “A” from <em>Entertainment Weekly</em>, “Z” from <em>Harper’s Bazaar</em>, “I” from <em>Marie Claire</em>, “N” from <em>Fortune</em>, and “ES” from <em>Esquire</em>.

Yep… you got it. Coffee after Coffee after Coffee. Anybody have any crest white strips? Clients come first and if they need something by 8am and CE couldn’t pull it together during working hours, we’ll extend our working hours… til 8am. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles sometimes… but at least we heart cookies.
We hired a new production manager…. he barks and bites. SCARY. Below is his new uniform… check back to see him on his first day.
Solid Branding… Keep it cool, consistent and fresh. Make sure that your brand has got it going on. Working on establishing elements for your company is what we do. Check out what we have been working on for Mullis – Peace Insurance Group.
CE Design Co… Making the World a Prettier Place
Working on the art for the 2010 Nazarene District Assembly. Here’s what we have come up with so far – encouragement to grow up and grow out. The future holds exciting things for churches and youth pastors who want cool artwork for their already solid messages. We will be unveiling a service that will allow embellishments for your masterful words. Check back soon for details! The program will be taking off in late September.
So we’ve got her for good… had to bribe her with a Keurig but she is here to stay. CE welcomes Sonya Baldwin. She’ll be bringing her polished style to our established client base by helping us churn out some sweet designs on a daily basis. After graduating from the Art Institute in Fort Lauderdale, Sonya gained experience working as a designer in Stuart, Florida before finding her true love on Craigslist. Pushing the pedal for an hour each way, Sonya will be here everyday!!
I think it is safe to say… this is our favorite project… EVER! We are head over heals about our latest idea palette. We’re just starting out, but we are loving it. CE will be developing a brand new site for the cutest and quaintest tea room around. Get over to Camellia Rose Tea Room and start sippin’ on this.
Here’s our latest pro bono project for Highland Park Church of the Nazarene Middle School Youth Group. Can’t wait to get away from these computers and get into the sun. This project makes us want our Florida Sunshine back. Trying to capture the unique surf styles of graphic design in this piece.
We’re Dancing… and we hope someone is watching. Just got back a brochure that we developed with one of our newest clients. Hope you like what you see. More completed design work on the way.
