Media Matrix staff members travel to Securitas client facilities, conduct interviews and take photographs, write copy, execute layout and design, oversee printing and more—right down to ensuring that each issue’s 20,000 copies are delivered on schedule. And with Media Matrix’s guidance, the magazine’s overall design was revamped last year.
