The October 2015 edition of the new Current E magazine will be out shortly. Here, for the first time, is a sneak peek at the front cover and contents page of the new 68 page publication.
“Production values are extremely high to match the classic, style-led design,” says Ross Ringham, editor at Current E. “The magazine uses heavy, silk-finish stock, with additional gold foil application to the headline and UV spot treatment to the logo, to make the publication leap off the desk. As usual, we’re utilising Park Lane Press to print and distribute the magazine: their waterless printing technology, power from renewable sources and use of recycled and recyclable paper give this publication hard-hitting sustainability credentials.”
There’s much more to the magazine than flashy finishes, however. “Between the covers, the October edition is packed with exclusive, in-depth interviews,” Ringham goes on. “There’s an eight-page feature on the first ever Formula E champion, Nelson Piquet, as well as pieces on every first season race winner. The pages burst with colour thanks to the stunning photography of Shiv Gohil and Dan Bathie; several features show off the bespoke shoots we’ve done with drivers. All in all, this first edition signals our intent: to produce an informative and entertaining publication that connects our readers more closely with the sport, technology and personalities that they love.”
The Current E magazine will be published quarterly and is distributed in print, online and at events. Its mixed readership includes EV enthusiasts, technology and engineering businesses connected to the EV and automotive markets, local authorities and transport departments in cities around the world where Formula E races, company fleet managers, race track staff, universities’ engineering courses, and others. Advertisers are advised to book now for 2016 editions.
We’ll publish a series of excerpts from the edition here all week. Keep it Current E.
