ABOUT IMGZINE

Everything you need to know about imgZine

OUR ROOTS

imgZine was founded in 2011. The founders, Marijn Deurloo
and Bert Kok, were inspired by the success of iPad apps like Flipboard, Pulse and Zite. They realized that the publishing industry was undergoing a massive disruption, driven by the convergence of storytelling, advertising and technological innovation. They sought to provide publishers with their own branded real time magazine and help them embrace these changes in the industry’s landscape.

It soon became clear that the imgZine platform was not only suitable for publishers, but also for corporates and organizations.

imgZine has created a platform for the effortless publishing of real time social magazines on mobile devices, based on existing content. Our platform consists of a content publishing platform, native tablet and smartphone magazine apps and an analytics dashboard.

Our developments are aimed at researching reading behavior in the new lean back age. On the one hand, we seek to help our customers retain their relevance in this mobile era. On the other hand, we strive to offer readers more enticing content experiences and smart filtering options.
