Introducing Studio Green







Introducing Studio Green in 2012.

Powered by Shape our Future, Studio Green (beta phase) is under development and aims to be an interactive reference and information site for all things ‘cool and green’.

Phase one sees the collection, collation and publishing of many years research, investigation, knowledge and experiences combined into a digital magazine style format.

Over time we will be adding new and relevant information and content, delivered via easy to navigate pages, blogs and searchable categories.

Phase two will see four digital editions released in year one, and circulated to a wide and global audience. The digital editions will be optimised for mobile reading (ie. Ipad, Android, Tablets and all browsers) placing interactive and enhanced content at the readers fingertips.

As part of the initial phase we are also seeking high quality ‘fresh and green’ content that is in line with the sites core categories and are inviting select brand funded media partners, advertisers and sponsors.
