Print or online? That seems to be the crucial question for many publishing houses at the moment, with a large proportion of the traditional magazines coming under increasing pressure due to dwindling readership figures and reticent advertising clients.

An air of uncertainty regarding the future is making itself felt at the editorial offices of many magazines. After all, even in the online business only a few providers actually manage to profit financially from their services.
And here at J’N’C of course we also want to meet the wishes and demands of our readership. Due to the fact that we, as magazine nerds, still fervently believe in the aesthetic and tangible advantages of print products, we gave both our mainstays – J’N’C Magazine and J’N’C News – an extensive makeover, to make them stand out even more in the crowd and increase their appeal amongs our readers.

We believe in 360° journalism that fulfils all the needs of our readers.

At the same time, we have also been nurturing and taking care of our youngsters – the J’N’C blog, the J’N’C website and the J’N’C newsletter. In the capable hands of our online activists Magdalena Piotrowski and Cheryll Mühlen, these three platforms have come of age and now, after three and a half years, are the ideal additions to our print product offer. On we not only post news from the fashion and retail industries several times a day, but also exclusive interviews, product presentations and reports on fashion shows from around the globe, including New York, London and Paris. Behind-the-scenes insights into the production of our city guides and fashion shoots give a taste of what is to come in the print editions.
As well as our website being up to the minute, it also offers an additional service: you can access all the city guides from the last 20 issues in a user-friendly package that even includes maps. There is also an extensive archive of our previous issues, with all the fashion editorials and street fashion styles included.

But getting back to the day-to-day fashion business: our weekly J’N’C newsletter provides an overview of the most important developments in the industry that week, as well as links to selected blog articles, which also reference the print content.
Fully tooled up, we want to continue meeting the requirements of an increasingly diversified market in the future, and provide an important service for our individualistic readership. And because your satisfaction is something we value deeply, we look forward to hearing your feedback on the new structuring of the J’N’C product family. Whatever it is you like about our publication, whatever you would like us to include or what you think we could improve on – please let us know!

We look forward to hearing your opinions and suggestions and, as always, wish you an inspiring read.
