Girlfriend Mag Goes Quarterly As Digital Offering Gets Major Overhaul

Pacific today revealed a reimagined Girlfriend brand: a new digital pop-up magazine, revamped online digital destination, keepsake quarterly print format and consumer events calendar targeted directly at Australian teen girls.

Tamara Davis, Content Director and Editor, Girlfriend, commented: “Our vision was to build a redefined model for the Girlfriend brand that directly delivers for today’s Gen Z female audience – including an always-on mobile offer- ing, a smart, relevant print format, innovative new com- mercial partnerships and interactive consumer events.

“Our redefined strategy evolves the brand with time- ly and relevant changes that cement Girlfriend’s proud heritage as the country’s number one resource for teen girls – with a more sophisticated multi-platform content approach that is directly tailored to the Gen Z Australi- an teen girl today.”

For the first time, Girlfriend will present an interactive digital magazine as an aspirational content vehicle that is fully enabled for sharing and shopping. The premium environment for advertisers offers visibility and brand connection to the Girlfriend audience in a ‘pop-up’ fre- quency designed to bring the content to life whilst cap- italising on news and trends.

Girlfriend’s always-on mobile offering provides an im- mersive experience and thumb stopping content tai- lored to digital natives. The new, custom-built website girlfriend.com.au is the ultimate home for stories rele- vant to teen experiences with editorial timed to teen activities like formals and summer holidays. Core con- tent pillars include entertainment and celebrity, beauty, fashion, life (including love) and win (prizes, promotions and experiences).

The new luxe quarterly print version features a double-sided, glossy, foiled cover and premium finish- es throughout and is a complete guide to the season ahead. Teen focused content pillars include friendship and love, entertainment, careers and extended mind, body, fashion and beauty advice – all with Girlfriend’s signature message of positivity and empowerment. Emma Watson fronts the cover, with the issue priced at $7.99 (available from today).
