Our Clients – We base each business relationship on integrity, transparency, professionalism, service and accountability. We put the needs of our clients first, and consider the satisfaction of those needs as the primary measure of our long-term success. We are, fundamentally, a client-service organization.  We take the time to get to know the client’s business, their wants, and their needs. We under-promise, over-deliver, and constantly strive to exceed clients’ expectations.


We’re Custom. Every project we undertake is completely customized for the client, because we’ve found that clients aren’t looking for “cookie cutter” solutions.

Our vision is not only to produce well-written, we-designed, and well-directed publications, in print, online and mobile, but also to create a pleasant client service experience to turn clients into fans, leading to long-term relationships and business referrals.


In 2000, Hour Media, publisher of Hour Detroit magazine, launched a division dedicated to providing clients with custom publishing and content marketing services. Hour Media is now recognized as the largest publisher of city, regional and custom publications in the country, including the marquee titles, Hour Detroit, Minnesota Monthly, Sacramento Magazine, Orange Coast, Los Angeles Magazine, Atlanta Magazine, Cincinnati Magazine, Palm Beach Illustrated and Naples Illustrated. We currently publish and produce 132 magazines and custom titles, 37 consumer websites, and 65 shows and events throughout the United States. With offices in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, New York and Ohio we have representation across the country.
