Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
Green Careers Journal, a publication with more than 30 years’ history, has relaunched to better serve its readers and advertisers. Overland Park, Kan.-based custom media company Ascend Integrated Media worked on the relaunch, and through its custom publishing team, executed a total redesign as well as moving the publication from a newspaper format to a glossy magazine.
Green Careers Journal was created to provide environmental professionals, aspiring job seekers, colleges, universities and others with articles and insights on environmental careers and the growing green economy. The magazine and its parent organization The Environmental Career Center have been advocates for environmental careers since 1980.
“The Green Careers Journal serves a vital mission,” said Eric Jacobson, Ascend vice president, media development. “We saw our contribution as significantly enhancing its look and feel, contributing to the writing and the overall strategic direction. These changes will make Green Careers Journal more inviting and engaging for readers, and attract additional advertising and corporate attention.”
“Ascend’s custom publishing team really helped us to envision the new format through its redesign work and we’re excited about our transition to the new magazine,” commented GCJ publisher John Esson. “We also have a renewed focus on in-depth reporting about environmentally sustainable careers and the emerging green economy. This magazine edition of the publication better serves our mission of connecting leading employers with top candidates for a sustainable future.”
“Green Careers Journal is situated at the confluence of the national economy, job creation, green energy, and environmental movement at large,” said Cam Bishop, CEO of Ascend Integrated Media. “Whenever we can apply our creativity and expertise to develop greater awareness in arenas as critical as these, it’s very gratifying.”
