Mindfood heads for home with latest brand extension

Magazine brands have long embraced the wagon wheel approach and interact with their audiences through a range of different mediums, whether it's print, online or events. And while there's no doubt print is declining in popularity in some segments, it is still working well in others and Mindfood has followed up its launch of its Style brand extension last year with a new one called Decor that's aimed at the big, growing but quite cluttered home and living market. PLUS: North & South's new murder 'mook'.

International cover lovers give Kiwi efforts the nod

One particular magazine cover has been generating plenty of discussion and plenty of entertaining responses (Homer Kimpson takes the win) in recent days. Not surprisingly, Kim Kardashian's effort for Paper caught the eye of Coverjunkie, a website that celebrates "creative covers and their ace designers". And a few local efforts from Next, Metro, North & South and Threaded, have also been featured recently.

North & South's Twitter stoush

The latest issue of North & South features an in-depth cover story on the Ewen Macdonald case that was one year in the writing. And, as often happens when a big story hits the public domain, it was picked up by the major papers, which led to a bit of an online barney between ACP and editor in chief of the Herald's products Tim Murphy.

ACP and TVNZ embrace healthy 'co-opetition' with win-win hybrid show

Print and TV are usually fairly uneasy and rather competitive bedfellows. But the once disparate media realms are steadily converging as TV websites embrace print and print titles increasingly embrace video. And TVNZ and ACP's North & South have converged on each other with a new show based on the long-running My Space section in the magazine that will screen on its patriotic pay TV channel Heartland.

ACP undertakes some renovations, Upstart mag goes digital and NZ Woman's Weekly gets charitable

North, South, East & West: the rag for the regions turns 25

There's no denying that in this digital age, where, as the famous geek saying goes, 'information wants to be free', the print media industry has suffered. Many publications have died and some are only just holding on, but others have stuck to their guns, adapted where necessary and managed to maintain their audience—and their advertisers. And North & South, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in March, is one of those publications.
