YUE Magazine, an Observer Media publication connecting China’s affluent travelers with luxury businesses in the United States, will debut an eye-catching, fresh, new look with its Fall 2013 issue. The publication’s re-design comes as the magazine celebrates its second anniversary this fall.
Starting September 2013, both YUE and its West Coast edition, formerly known as LUO, will share the same magazine title YUE. YUE’s East Coast edition will cover the unique experiences that New York and surrounding regions have to offer, while YUE’s West Coast edition will focus on the lifestyle of California and Las Vegas. “We want the best of two worlds - a national brand with region-specific content,” says Chiu-Ti Jansen, Publisher of YUE Magazine, “we are constantly seeking to sharpen our edge in engaging our curious readers who develop fast-changing tastes. A strong national brand will further our name recognition among the Chinese luxury travelers who seek to bond with the alluring U.S. lifestyle.”
In addition, the magazine will adopt a new oversize format, dynamic layouts, expanded exclusive contents and the powerful use of original photography to create maximum impact. This September, readers will also discover enhanced digital content with the magazine’s new iPad application.
YUE Magazine is the first bilingual lifestyle magazine focusing on the unique luxury experiences in the United States for affluent Chinese consumers. YUE publishes four issues a year and covers everything from fashion, jewelry, watches, art, shopping, culture, fine dining, real estate and education, offering China’s sophisticated reader a multi-faceted view and a better understanding of America’s elite lifestyle.
