San Diego Magazine Media
San Diego Magazine has been in the market since 1948 and has grown from a single monthly lifestyle publication into an expansive multi-media company. Our product portfolio now includes 10 titles, multiple websites, e-newsletters, events, social media, video production, custom media and podcasting.
We’ve taken our expertise for reporting the stories of our city and deliver that content to our readers in every format that suits their lifestyle. Whether they are following us on social media, reading our e-newsletter or attending an event, we deliver an experience that lets them live the best of #sdlife.
San Diego Magazine’s Custom Media division offers clients the opportunity to engage with their customers in the same way that we do. We can tell your story through a custom publication, e-newsletter, event or podcast. Our content development and branding expertise can be your secret weapon.
Ever since we partnered with San Diego Magazine, the San Diego Festival of the Arts has continued to grow. With the guidance and support of San Diego Magazine, the festival has grown in attendance nearly 40%, rebranded and moved to the beautiful Waterfront Park, and our sponsorship numbers have soared. We could not continue our mission to support San Diegans with disabilities without the leadership of the San Diego Magazine team.
