Indulgence through excellence

The rise of niche publications

Publications offering more in-depth content, targeting fewer readers that are more loyal, are coming to the fore. Branded magazines that culture a sense of belonging and community are also gaining in popularity. Even digital giants like Airbnb, Uber, and Netflix have launched print publications in recent years!
