Getting the word out while supporting stuff we love

Even with almost 15 years of furniture making experience, Brokenpress Design+Fabrication is still a new business. We’ve slowly dipped our toes into the world of advertising, but are very selective on who we market to. Our mid-century modern fans can see us in Atomic Ranch. Since we love the pinup lifestyle, it made sense for us to advertise with Kat Club, a great new offshoot magazine by the amazing Retro Lovely. We thought it was a great way to support a magazine we love, while getting our name out to like-minded people. Guess what?  Retro Lovely even shared our ad on their facebook page! (Welcome, new fans!)

We’re on the lookout for the right audiophile magazine to help us share our great audio storage pieces! Know of one? Please contact us and we’ll look into it!

Our first official ad in Atomic Ranch magazine

Starting out a business isn’t as easy as one would think. For many years I did graphic design work in the evenings and the weekends. I never really thought much about professional advertising. However, I knew Alex’s work needed to be in front of the right audience. After spending an afternoon picking up magazines at City News, we came across Atomic Ranch. I used to subscribe years ago when I was living a modern condo life. I don’t know why I forgot about it, but when brought the issue home, we immediately renewed our subscription. After a couple of weeks we thought where else would be a better place for Alex to advertise Brokenpress? I emailed and fortunately we were able to make it in by the Spring issue’s deadline.

Mid-Century Modernized Advertisement for Brokenpress Design in Chicago

Our first official ad – great outside of page placement!

Today two copies arrived in the mail – our subscriber copy and our advertiser copy. It’s their 10th anniversary issue and it features a lovely property in Chicago. We hope this helps give Brokenpress an introduction to the larger mid-century modern audience that his work fits so well into. If you haven’t looked at Atomic Ranch before, pick up a copy today. If you see it, please contact us via Facebook or here and tell us what you thought of it!
