We know that putting together a great story with awesome pictures for an important publication like Innovate can be very daunting. That is why our production process has been designed to make it as easy and painless as possible for you to get all the collateral to us so we can do all the heavy lifting.
You will receive an email from our production department. All you have to do after receiving this email is to say hi to your own personal production manager that will act as a go-between for you, the designers, and the editors. Oh, and you have to also let the production manager know who he/she will be dealing with to get all the necessary elements together for your story. We know some of you are very busy (or maybe you don’t have a creative bone in your body) so you might want to pass the baton to someone more suitable.
Though this book is filled with Innovation stories rather than advertising, we still want you to get your brand out there and let the world know that you are one of them – the forward thinkers, the visionaries, the people that are building a better tomorrow. To do this, we need your logo(s) in one of the following formats:
.PNG File (this one must be transparent and at least 1 megabyte)
This is the Contact Information that will appear on your feature and online in the “Contact Box”. Send us only the information you would like to show in your feature.
This is by far the most important thing we need and we need to make sure we get it right. This is your window to shine to the world. This is what is going to make people think “Wow! These guys are Awesome!”
There are slightly different requirements for the Feature piece vs. the Thought Leader piece:
If you are not a great writer and are having problems crafting your story, you can use the “Book an Interview” button to book a 30-minute phone call with one of our expert writers and they can put your story on paper for you.
Now that you have a great story, the thing to make it come alive is the great images that compliment your story – pictures that tell a story by themselves, and that will pique the interest of the reader. The last thing you want is to use low-quality images on a great story, which is why we need your images to be at least 300Dpi with a minimum file size of 1 megabyte. Images can be JPG, PNG or TIFF files and they will still work fine.
Arguably the coolest thing about the Innovate series is the embedded Augmented Reality Video. Not only does it give you the ability to give readers additional information and change the information at any stage, it is also very innovative and the future of publishing. Especially when the new AR wearables like Magic Leap, Hololens, Meta, ODG, and Intel’s Vaunt come into their own in the next couple of years.
There are a few requirements for a great AR video though:
