Magazine Website

Ink launched a new responsive website housing the content for the National Magazine in August 2016 and worked with Amtrak and their in-house teams to upload that content directly on to every train ensuring a seamless and quick download time not dependent on outside connection speeds.

Every edition is supported with a newsletter to customers and a raft of social media outreach.
