Pinchazo Publishing Acquires Inked Magazine

Pinchazo Publishing has acquired Inked Magazine. The magazine has been re-launched and is now in bookstores. Inked is an upscale lifestyle and fashion magazine with a focus on rebellious luxury.

"Inked was launched by Seed Communications in June 2005 as a quarterly publication and was a success with the creative community and general public. Inked will examine the art and lives of the trendsetters and early adapters that influence popular culture, tattoo artists, actors, musicians and cultural icons," according to Don Hellinger, president .

The magazine has also undergone a redesign at the hands of creative director Todd Weinberger, formerly of Gyro Worldwide Advertising. "Inked caters to a diverse group of readers that believe strongly in self-expression and individuality," said Weinberger. "Some of our readers have ink, some don’t. But they all appreciate the art of tattooing, and they understand good design. I’ve done my best to reflect that sensibility."

Inked will distribute two issues in the last quarter of 2007, with the first being a fall "preview" issue that hit newsstands October 15. The second will be on stands December 15. Response from the ad community has been strong, and a broad spectrum of advertisers from the automotive, tobacco and alcohol, electronics, and fashion industries are expected to appear in the magazine in 2008.

Bold New Canadian Business Magazine

Canadian Business magazine has never been afraid to change. From its origin as a house organ for the Canadian Chamber of Commerce to today's magazine for the digital age, Canadian Business has consistently embraced the challenge of staying ahead of the expectations of its readers. Knowing that today's business decision-makers operate in an information-saturated environment, the team at Canadian Business took the last 10 months to conduct reader research and to think deeply about the unique value the magazine offers.

The result is a bold new look that is both radically different in appearance and architecture but stays true to its mission of providing unique, relentlessly forward-looking and valuable insights into the companies, personalities and events that matter to business people. The newly redesigned Canadian Business, featuring the annual MBA Guide, arrives on newsstands across the country.

Cuisine Noir Magazine : The First Magazine For and About African-American Chefs

At last, food enthusiasts around the world will have the opportunity to explore the world of ethnic cuisine as seen though the eyes of African-American Chefs. Cuisine Noir, the first magazine for and about African-American Chefs is a well overdue online magazine created to highlight the contributions of people of color in the culinary industry.

Cuisine Noir magazine is the vision of publisher Chef Richard K. Pannell. Over the years as Pannell advanced in his career as a chef, he noticed that there was one thing missing: the lack of African-American chefs in mainstream media such as TV and magazines. "Cuisine Noir is all about seeing our faces and hearing our voices as it relates to the culinary industry," noted Pannell. He goes on to say "Because I wasn't seeing the representation out there, I decided to create our own vehicle instead of complaining about it."

Published on a bi-monthly basis, this unique and well spoken magazine will feature the history of ethnic cuisines through stories and recipes from some of the world's top African-American chefs and culinary professionals.

Additional features of the magazine include restaurant and wine reviews, recipes of the month from readers and an exclusive national culinary directory of black-owned restaurants and wineries.
