NEW YORK, June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Surface Media, the definitive American voice of global contemporary design, announced today the opening of Surface Studios, a creative house that will partner with brands to produce distinctive media. As the custom publishing and native content division of Surface Media, it will utilize the vast intel that comes through the company's global pipeline.
"Surface isn't just a magazine; it's a content company. We're known for producing best-in-class storytelling, and I'm thrilled to now be able to help brands seeking quality content that conveys their stories. Surface Studios will be a game-changer for our business, and just as importantly, for the businesses we're going to be working with," says Surface Media CEO Marc Lotenberg.
"Before we even created a logo or media kit for the Surface Studios division of Surface Media, we were able to secure several million dollars in commitments," Lotenberg added. By 2018, Surface Studios is projected to reach $20 million in revenue. Surface Studios' first major commission comes from prominent real estate firm Swire Properties Inc. For Miami's mixed-use Brickell City Centre development, Surface Studios will produce a biannual magazine, to launch this fall.
Editor-in-chief of Surface, Spencer Bailey says, "We view Surface Studios as a holistic, boundary-crossing project that will help brands, real estate developers, and others reach a diverse range of design-conscious consumers. Few people know how to speak to this market in a way that seems natural or even knowledgeable. Through Surface Studios, we'll work closely with clients to hone their voice while writing about, documenting, and packaging their products and projects in a meaningful way."
Helming Surface Studios is editor Jennifer Parker, who joins the company from Blouin ArtInfo, where she served as U.S. Editor. Parker previously worked for Bloomberg TV, and has been published by Travel + Leisure and the Washington Post, among other publications.
