Antiques Retro & Collectables Magazine is an Online Magazine, aimed at those that the title suggests! With a Simple Publishing Mechanism, it’s easy to see why ARC Gets plenty of readers each month, all interested in reading the issues. Created and Inspired by some of the industry’s leading writers and broadcasters. Now on issue 9 the magazine is already atracting a loyal following of readers eager to read the broad range of articles being produced each month.
Our Design Brief was to create a simple but stylish, and modern website, which allows for Reader Input, and full display/tracking of the magazine. Their previous design was bland, and didn’t allow for much connectivity with the readers. They felt they wished their readers would spend more time on the site, than they currently were, and it would be easier to navigate for anyone new to the magazine.
With Monthly Competitions being regular , it needed to be easily updatable and easy to do, so we used a simple Content Management System as a base.
Following our re-design, it is noticable that readers spend more time on the site than they used to, navigating their way through older issues, which are now easily accessible.
