PropertyWeek has unveiled a redesign of its website and launched a spin-off monthly aimed at a global audience.
The new website was designed by Applied Information Group creative director Malcolm Garrett, one of the first designers to switch exclusively to multimedia design more than a decade ago.
The site’s new design aims to make better use of the colour-coding system that was introduced to the print magazine when it was redesigned in 2005 by This Is Real Art.
“For PropertyWeek a really important thing is design, because a lot of the readers are into development.
They put up new buildings, whether they are developers themselves or architects – so they are very design conscious,” said editor Giles Barrie.
“You have to go to a good designer, otherwise they’ll slate you.”
Gossip from property industry events will feature heavily on the new PropertyWeek.com, to be edited by web editor Hannah Emmanuel, who recently joined from yachting and boating portal YBW.com.
Original content on the new site will be free, but material repurposed from the B2B weekly will be available to subscribers only for one week before becoming free to everyone.
PropertyWeek Global, the new magazine aimed at international property investors, will be published 10 times per year.
It is expected to have a global circulation of 15,000, including 8,000 of them abroad.
It will be edited PropertyWeek features editor Claer Barrett.
