6 Questions for 1843, The Economist’s Newly Relaunched Lifestyle Mag

The Economist Group has relaunched its quarterly lifestyle title, 1843, with a new editor and new design, promising deep dives into style, food, travel and technology—feature articles on the topics that might interest readers of the company's flagship magazine, but wouldn't necessarily appear in the pages of The Economist itself. If all of that sounds familiar, you aren't imagining things. The company essentially did the same thing three years ago, rebranding The Economist's then-nine year-old sister title Intelligent Life as 1843 (named after the year The Economist was founded) and expanding the content mix to include profiles, travel writing and fashion shoots on thicker, higher-quality paper stock. What's different this time around—apart a new tagline and a slightly tweaked, greatly enlarged logo—is a trimmed-down rate base, increased annual subscription rate and, perhaps most crucially, a series of new digital offerings and integrations with The Economist's digital channels, from a new website and a podcast to a digital edition available to Economist subscribers through the brand's mobile app. To hear more about the strategy behind the latest iteration of the magazine, we had some questions for 1843 editor Rosie Blau—who joined The Economist in 2010 and most recently served as its China correspondent—and Mark Beard, The Economist's senior VP of global subscriber acquisition and publisher of 1843.
