NEW YORK, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RobbReport, the manual of modern luxury, is proud to unveil a 360-degree refresh of the brand, including a redesigned print magazine which will launch with the 29th annual June Best of the Best issue on newsstands June 6, and a new, fully responsive website. The sophisticated redesign of both the print and digital products marks the latest in Robb Report's ongoing quest for innovation and personal bests.
Since its inception over 40 years ago, Robb Report has extended its brand footprint to multiple international editions spanning 17 countries and nine languages, RobbReport.com, and—for a very select group—the invitation-only membership body of RR1, which provides extraordinary access to once-in-a-lifetime experiences and thought-provoking interactions with luxury leaders. The recent announcement of a holistic brand refresh, encompassing a dramatic and groundbreaking design evolution, comes on the heels of Penske Media Corporation's (PMC) partnership on Robb Report with Rockbridge Growth Equity in December 2016.
Says Jay Penske, CEO and chairman of Penske Media Corporation, "Robb Report is a brand that is all about passion, and we're thrilled to unveil a new aesthetic that exemplifies that passion in a highly visual and deeply engaging design. Our team has worked tirelessly to create a series of products that will wow our brand partners and subscribers, ensuring they become as passionately engaged in our content as we do in creating and distributing it. This is a new era for Robb Report, and we look forward to continuous innovation as well as best-in-class content and products."
The redesign will encompass more original photography and deeper content across both the print and digital platforms. Additional key features include:
An expanded trim size—increased to 9 and 11/16 x 11 and 3/4 from the previous 8 and 1/4 x 10 and 3/4.
Unveiling of brand-new illustrated covers—a segment first, enabling Robb Report to express all facets of luxury through thoughtful illustration.
Broadened scope of content and coverage, including happenings at auction and secondary markets as well as a look at historical pieces and collectibles.
Introduction of a series of new editorial sections that will showcase the faces behind the products—the tastemakers, the artisans, and the collectors—in addition to the products themselves.
Brand new RobbReport.com homepage design, fully responsive and optimized for phone, tablet, and desktop.
Expansive online photo-gallery templates for vibrant showcases of luxury visuals and imagery.
Coming soon, a microsite devoted to Robb Report's signature events, including its Car of the Year franchise, Culinary Masters, and Health & Wellness Summit.
"Content of the highest quality has always been the cornerstone of Robb Report," says editor in chief Brett Anderson, "and now our superior subject matter will be presented in a visually stunning format that offers a more enjoyable and entertaining experience, while reflecting a stronger, unique point of view. With the introduction of a sophisticated redesign—unveiled in this special edition and carried over to RobbReport.com—Robb Report brings its coveted content to life through more original photography and enhanced storytelling, enabling our readers to make smarter, more informed decisions."
