Sea Island Life Magazine – Sea Island Resort

“Three years ago, we were in search of a publisher to produce a Sea Island lifestyle magazine. Sea Island is a Forbes Five-Star resort and therefore needed a publishing partner who would produce a publication of the same high standards our guests’ and members’ expect from Sea Island.


The search ended when we found Firebrand Media. Their publications offered interesting and well-written content, clean layout, and high quality paper and photography. Firebrand’s knowledge of producing custom magazines was exactly what we needed to create Sea Island Life magazine. 


In addition to content and layout, we needed a partner who had the capabilities and relationships to manage advertising. Firebrand successfully finds brand-appropriate advertisers and has increased each issue’s ad revenue.


Firebrand works with us to create a magazine that encompasses the spirit of Sea Island. They understand our brand, provide branded content to reflect what our readership wants to read, and produces each issue on deadline.”
