In 2019, the Chamber made the decision to move away from their third-party publisher and take the project in-house. As part of the process, they put together a tender for redesign and publishing and invited local design companies to submit their ideas to take the publication into the 21st century.
After hearing proposals from a number of publishing and design teams, the Chamber announced SPARKIUS / Interactive Magazines as their Official Publishing Partner.
In September 2019, the new PROSPER Magazine was launched as a 64-page, premium-quality printed publication accompanied by a fully interactive, mobile-friendly digital magazine.
When we made the decision to revamp PROSPER Magazine, we reached out to creative businesses within the West Midlands to share their ideas and vision.
The feedback was extensive but Steve Parker at Interactive Magazines stood out from the crowd with a comprehensive plan for a premium-quality printed publication bolstered by an interactive, mobile-friendly digital magazine.
At the time of writing, we have published two 64-page printed magazines and the feedback from the local business community has been overwhelmingly positive.
We are now the proud publishers of a serious business publication that reflects our brand ethos and the messaging we share.
