Forbes redesigns print magazine
Forbes redesigned its print magazine for the first time in eight years, modernizing the design and curating editorial to produce a more streamlined package and reading experience.
Sara Guaglione of Publishers Daily reported, “This was the right time to modernize the 100-year-old magazine, Lane said. ‘Forbes sits at historic highs’ for its print, digital and social audience. The magazine has about 6 million print readers; Forbes.com has roughly 70 million.

“The updates to the print magazine were made with the understanding that people are consuming the majority of content on their phones.
