Trusted, Tested, Transformed: Welcome to the New Good Housekeeping

Leading Women's Magazine Is Reimagined With Fun, Fresh Energy and a Modern Aesthetic

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/10/12 -- Beginning with the January 2013 issue, Good Housekeeping is transformed with an all-new look, infusing the brand's rich heritage with fun, fresh energy, a sense of surprise and discovery, and plenty of ideas and inspiration. A bold redesign, new logo, and seven sections that present service and information with beautiful graphics make for an impactful reader experience. Hallmarks of the new Good Housekeeping include vibrant color, engaging photography and inventive type treatment. The new look leverages the iconic Good Housekeeping Seal, the most recognized consumer emblem in America, throughout its pages.

In re-thinking the brand, Good Housekeeping worked with The Futures Company/Yankelovich to field a study to explore the role of fun and discovery in women's lives. The Good Housekeeping Report on Women: Rediscovering Fun surveyed a national sample of women, of which 82 percent say they are determined to have more fun, and 79 percent look for ways to introduce more fun into their lives. The majority of women surveyed said they consider reading magazines to be a lot of fun, and see it as an escape and "me-time."

With these learnings, plus a full year of extensive polling and focus-group research among its audience, Good Housekeeping set about re-envisioning the magazine with an emphasis on joy, pleasure, and inspiration. A top-to-bottom re-organization eliminated the feature well and highlights the Good Housekeeping Research Institute throughout, integrating the labs' unique product testing in each section. Readers' voices are more prominent, and a mix of bite-sized information, real women's stories and the magazine's signature deep reporting of health and consumer issues creates content that is rich and personal. The new Good Housekeeping includes more beauty, fashion and food coverage, while still delivering the consumer advocacy pieces that are integral to the brand's DNA.

"For more than a year, we've been looking at how we could make Good Housekeeping better -- engaging with women across America in a lively dialogue, keeping the things we know they love, and finding ways to give them more fun every month," said Rosemary Ellis, editor in chief. "The result is a magazine that's revitalized and reimagined, with more ideas, thoughts and opinions from our readers."

"As the leading women's service magazine, Good Housekeeping provides trusted, tested advice and information for nearly 21 million readers, and now, we're thrilled to bring more fun into their lives each month with an all-new, transformed look and fresh energy," said Pat Haegele, SVP/Group Publisher.

Content is now divided into seven vertical sections, each including the word 'good' in its title and a text treatment that incorporates the Seal's famous star:

  • GOOD LIFE: What's new, now, and noteworthy

  • LOOK GOOD: Beauty and fashion tips, trends and deals

  • FEEL GOOD: Smart ways to stay well, eat right, and get fit

  • GOOD COMPANY: Real women and real-world advice from columnists Carmen Wong Ulrich, Peggy Post, Gretchen Rubin, and more

  • GOOD HOUSE: Gorgeous ideas, easy organizing, and smart fixes, with fresh inspiration, reader-submitted tips, and advice from Heloise

  • GOOD FOOD: Triple-tested recipes from the GH Test Kitchens with delicious ideas and easy shortcuts

  • GOOD READS: Captivating reads, exclusive excerpts, and essays from best-selling authors and up-and-coming writers

To celebrate the new Good Housekeeping, the January issue includes an interactive sweepstakes, "Scanned, Sealed, Delivered." Readers can download the free Good Housekeeping Scanned Sealed Delivered app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play, and then use a mobile device to scan the watermarked Seal embedded with Digimarc® Discover technology on select advertisements, for a chance to win home and kitchen appliances, beauty products, cash prizes, and more.

About Good Housekeeping
Founded in 1885, Good Housekeeping magazine (www.goodhousekeeping.com) reaches nearly 21 million readers each month. In addition to the print title, there is The Good Housekeeping Research Institute, the consumer product evaluation laboratory of Good Housekeeping magazine. Founded in 1900 and continuing today with the same mission, the Research Institute is dedicated to improving the lives of consumers and their families through education and product evaluation. Only products evaluated by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute can be accepted for advertising in the magazine, and thereby become eligible to display the Good Housekeeping Seal, the hallmark that provides assurance to readers that the products advertised in the magazine are backed by a two-year limited warranty against being defective, with specified exceptions. In 2009, the Green Good Housekeeping Seal was introduced as an environmental overlay to the primary Seal. It offers consumers guidance to help them choose products that are exercising environmental responsibility on a wide range of criteria. Readers can also interact with the brand on the digital front, with Good Housekeeping mobile (m.goodhousekeeping.com), at Goodhousekeeping.com and through its [email protected] and Anti-Aging Beauty Shopper iPhone apps.
