Sandow's Worth wins award
July 20, 2012-- Furniture Today,
BOCA RATON, Fla.-Worth magazine, owned by Furniture/Today's parent Sandow Media, has won the Best Magazine Redesign from the Society of Publication Designers.
According to Adam I. Sandow, CEO of Sandow Media, headquartered here, "The SPD competition yields thousands of entries from around the world to find the best examples of design, photography and illustration represented in the editorial work of 2009. This year, from among a total of 48 magazines submitting ‘before and after' issues for redesign consideration, only four finalists - Maxim, The New York Times Magazine, Tennis and Worth - were chosen by the judges as the representatives of the very best work and possible Medal Finalists for Redesign. We could not be more thrilled that Worth received the Gold award."
"Smart redesigns look great; excellent, award-winning redesigns not only look great, but are easier to navigate, elevate the editorial content, and indicate to the readers, from cover to cover and issue after issue, the true editorial authority behind what's being presented to them," said Emily White, executive director of SPD.
Worth magazine was purchased by Sandow Media in February 2008 and was relaunched in the spring of 2009. The magazine addresses the relevant financial, legal and lifestyle issues unique to individuals with a high net worth.
In addition to Worth, Sandow Media's other flagship brands include the beauty publication NewBeauty; Watch Journal; and Luxe Interiors + Design, the nation's largest network of luxury home and design magazines.
Earlier this year, Sandow acquired Furniture/Today along with Interior Design, Gifts & Decorative Accessories, Home Textiles Today, Casual Living, Home Accents Today, Kids Today and Playthings from Reed Business Information. All these acquired publications are business to-business print and online brands serving the commercial and residential design and home furnishings and accessories industries.
