Contract wins for Big Spark

Manchester-based contract publisher Big Spark has won the contract to produce three magazine launches.

The quarterly customer magazines are for Norwich International Airport, Plymouth City Airport and the bar and restaurant group Fat Cat.

This brings the total number of publications to 14 since it was founded at the start of the year.

Fat Cat’s magazine will be called BL3 but the titles for the airport magazines are still not decided.

Jonathan Richard, who will edit BL3 was previously group managing editor at Northern and Shell until 2000, when he launched publishing company There There Media.

He said: “We are looking for fertile territories, and regional airports are coming of age.

“The titles are not just parochial, they will have heavy lifestyle components with celebrity interviews, car tests, financial pages and destinations.

“We are trying to build a good, general and valued read.”

Nine journalists will work on the three titles, which will also use freelance contributions.

The titles will be launched on 17 December.
