Riversmead, a member of Network Housing Group, was established in 1995 to manage homes for East Herts Council and in March 2002 it took ownership of 3,237 homes. Today it owns and manages more than 4,000 homes across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire and through continual planned growth and development this will increase by 500 homes over the next five years.
Campbell Marsh was asked to develop some new concepts for Riversmead’s quarterly residents’ magazine and after a detailed development process, involving consultation with residents, the chosen route was a development of our successful Life magazine concept.
The bold contemporary look combines short news stories with regulatory information being brought to life using a strong iconography approach.
Riversmead Life has become a popular read among residents, with nearly 82% of them reporting in a 2012 readership survey that they think the magazine is ‘very good’ or ‘good’ according.
The Summer 2012 issue was another colourful and vibrant read, containing local news, Riversmead performance information, important information about benefit changes and a new Q&A feature with the executive director.
