commARCH , from its inception , has focused on providing its subscribers ’ interests on their preferred platforms . Some content is best consumed in a high-end print magazine and companion digital edition . Other content is most valuable via the commARCH website , enewsletters , social platforms , virtual events , webinars , etc . The focus is always on “ consumption .” We are continually measuring what is consumed , what is searched for , and its associated value to our audience .
The magazine that you physically or digitally hold in your hands is designed based on your insights and feedback . We learned early on that the business-to-business publications serving our market blend together and , for our target audience , feel like they are produced for a previous generation . These are your dad ’ s magazines . commARCH readers had been turning to high-quality European design magazines that provide inspiration and positively impact their visions of what a built environment could be . That is why we use the highest quality paper and create inspiring covers to feed into your “ concept ” phase instead of presenting “ another commercial building image .” Feedback has proven this is a spot-on strategy .
A print / digital edition is a different experience : an intimate play between the reader and the content . We purposely use stronger images throughout the title , with teaser content leading you to the full-length website articles , because this is the way our audience wants to consumes its information .
This issue holds some experimental content approaches as a means to learn if these new approaches will connect even better with you . Shortly , you will receive ANOTHER survey from the commARCH Research Group and its third-party partners to find out if these “ experiments ” hit the mark and what enhancements need to be made as they evolve .
Right now is the most exciting time to be part of a business-to-business media company , despite what you may hear from others . commARCH loves all the platforms available to connect with its audience . Right now is the greatest time to be an information resource for architects and owners / developers in the commercial construction space .
Thank you for being an integral part of this ride . You are commARCH ’ s “ Editor In Chief ,” as our dozens of editors are here to serve you .
Why name this introduction to the issue “ Colors and Shapes ?” Why else ? It is the Mac Miller song we are currently obsessed with .
