Marmalade is aimed at anyone working in the creative industries – from advertising and magazines to fashion.

The first edition will include interviews with actor Rhys Ifans and Labour politician Tony Benn by Guardian and Now magazine columnist Zoe Williams. Marmalade is the first of a number of titles that newly created Hotbed Publishing is researching and developing.

Sector: financial news
Publisher: Bloomberg Media
Bloomberg.com is being relaunched with sharpened content and a vivid, minimalist design aimed at giving serious investors essential news with a global view. The website which is powered by the resources of Bloomberg News is to focus on the Dow Jones, FTSE and Nikkei and aims to quickly show which of the world’s major markets are moving, and the top stories behind those moves. There has been a cut in advertising inventory on the site and the home page now has only nine top news stories and two opinion columns chosen by its team of editors.
David Wachtel, head of Bloomberg Media, said: “The redesign raises the standard of news delivery online by redefining content and creating a better environment for users.”
