HIGHLY COMMENDED: PUBLISHING
Run by cyclists for cyclists, quarterly magazine Conquista is packed with indepth articles and poignant imagery, and merges style, passion and emotion with thoughtful, intelligent comment. However, it was struggling to stand out on the shelf and enlisted SB to help increase readership.
The Liverpool-based studio responded with a new energetic, expressive and vivid visual style, amplifying the elements that already made Conquista distinctive and putting emotive and expressive typography at the forefront of the publication.
Issue 13 hit the shelves to widespread acclaim in December 2016, and has since enjoyed a huge 48 per cent increase in subscribers, and an overall sales increase of 74 per cent – almost quadrupling its original target of 20 per cent. A bespoke range of bicycles and cycle wear was launched in June 2017.
