2013 has been an exciting year for The Business Exchange Swindon & Wiltshire.
Launching the first edition of the magazine in September of this year we received an excellent response and so far we are delighted that people are engaging with our fresh, creative approach to business news.
We are fast becoming the most read business magazine in the county and the one to watch, delivering free copies of the magazine to all of the towns throughout Wiltshire. We believe there is still a future for quality print, paired with an online offering and we are investing heavily in creating a brand identity that rivals any national magazine title.
If you have seen magazine editions 1-3 you will see we have gone on a creative journey when you pick up edition 4 this month. We hope you will agree that the colour coded sections, user journey and brand identity not only makes the magazine easy to read but something that you want to be part of.
We have been working closely with Juicy Designs and Studio Creative Services based in Old Town, Swindon to achieve this. Partnering with Steve Munson (Studio Creative Services) and Dale Wyatt (Juicy Designs) seemed the perfect fit with their combined experience in the print and design industry adding up to over 50 years.
After working with clients such as Audi, Harley Davidson and the Research Councils throughout their careers and expressing a real passion for design we set to work on moving the existing concept for the magazine to the next level. Edition 4 is a special December / January edition – out tomorrow throughout Wiltshire celebrating business successes of 2013 and what’s new for 2014.
The Business Exchange has ambitious plans for the coming year and with this in mind we have taken growth investment to ensure we can cope with growing demand. As part of this investment, local businessman James Phipps is joining the team as a director of the company to help with the strategic direction. You can contact him at: James@varndev.co.uk.
“As a local business owner, I understand the need for local companies to exchange information with other businesses in the local area and The Business Exchange does this very effectively. It clearly has found a need and we look forward to extending the reach in the local and regional area further in the coming months” said James Phipps.
