The next-generation Audi Update magazine went live this week, after a complete technical and design overhaul. Refreshed and reinvigorated with a simple, bold and sophisticated look, the new site is intuitive to use, with greater interaction, and improvements to compatibility mean the site is now viewable across platforms – desktop, tablet and mobile (and anything else you can think of) – regardless of operating system. The Northstar-designed website is aimed at Audi UK’s prospects, keeping them up to date (as the name suggests) on the latest model launches and news. Audi Update features beautiful photography from the award-winning Audi Magazine, as well as videos and the ability to share content on social media. We’re delighted with the results – and you can take a look at Audi Update here.
New-look Audi Update goes live
Open to the elements
Where are the top 10 best beaches in the world? We’ll give you the first one: it’s a beach in Brazil. If you guessed the Seychelles, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, then well done. What you might not expect – but certainly earns its place – is the beach at number nine: Rhossili Bay in Wales. With spectacular views and an abundance of fresh air, it seemed like the ideal place to take the Porsche 911 Cabriolet for Christophorus magazine. We produce the UK section for Porsche’s international magazine, and the forthcoming issue also includes an interview with 20-year-old racing driver Josh Webster – one of the most promising talents in UK motor sport.
The story behind the name
Marie Curie supporters will receive a little dose of sunshine this week, with the arrival of our new, bright yellow Shine On, the magazine we produce on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Care. For this latest issue, we went to Grantham to meet two of the charity’s Rapid Response Nurses who are there for patients in a crisis – seven days a week. We also look back at the incredible life of Nobel Prize-winning scientist Marie Curie, the charity’s namesake. Not only does this year mark the 80th anniversary of her death but it’s also the centenary of World War One – where Marie’s pioneering X-ray unit played a vital role.
The action unfolds
With the vivid, noise-filled and colourful memories of the captivating 72nd Members’ Meeting still in everyone’s minds, the latest Goodwood Road Racing Club folding newsletter makes sure members are geared up for a summer of octane action. The fourth issue of the Northstar-produced publication is packed with information on all of the club’s forthcoming motoring events, including breakfast meetings, track days and European driving tours, taking place throughout spring and summer. There are also updates on the 2014 Moving Motor Show and Goodwood Festival of Speed.
It seems to be some of the oldest advice in the media world: don’t work with animals. When you hear it, you imagine a small and fluffy Golden Labrador puppy on Blue Peter, gnawing on a piece of on-set furniture, or maybe an orangutan ruffling David Attenborough’s hair. What you don’t expect is seeing a scorpion, a giant centipede, and a handful of beetles (not that we even attempted to pick them up) on a photo shoot for the next issue of Calibre, Watches of Switzerland’s customer magazine. Despite the continual fear of working with the dangerous creatures, the pictures were well worth it. We’ll show you the results when the magazine arrives in stores later in spring.
