Show Media is a creative agency based in Shoreditch, East London, comprising editors, art directors, designers, digital managers and project managers. We also work with a strong team of freelance writers, photographers, stylists, commercial managers and web developers. We cover:
Show Media was founded by Peter Howarth, formerly editor-in-chief of Arena and Esquire magazines, Ian Pendleton (Royal College of Art and Esquire) and Joanne Glasbey (The Economist and Esquire). All three are directors of the company and met while Peter was editor-in-chief of Esquire, Ian was art director and Joanne deputy editor. They set up Show Media as a publishing company in 2003 with the idea of producing both private magazines for luxury brands and consumer titles for other publishing firms.
After a couple of years, clients were asking Show Media to create brochures, adverts, logos and other printed marketing collateral, websites and apps. From there, the company has grown into a full-service creative agency, specialising in content creation for different print and digital platforms. We work with a wide range of clients from luxury fashion and jewellery houses to property companies and premium drinks brands.
