Skill Set

The launching and sustaining of a new publication, in a market where print readership and subscription were on the decline, created many challenges and opportunities. It required deliberate market segmentation and sensitivity, to deliver valued content to a niche market, where visuals, critique and dialogue were still appreciated through the medium of print.
