Chartwells Magazine Snapshot
Chartwells Magazine is a monthly, dynamic, fun-to-read, digital newsletter for and about Chartwells Higher Education's associates and clients that is accessible by any smart device. According to Chartwells' Communications Director, Kristine Andrews, "With design and production services from Kaleidoscopic Inc., we created a technologically modern electronic communication with an upscale look and feel that speaks to multiple audiences. It was designed to engage associates and share news with our clients as well as the public and media."

The "newsletter" name was dropped and the term "magazine" was used because the digital publication truly has the look and feel of a glossy, vibrant magazine. High quality photos and other design aspects unique to magazine styles, content and layout are used to attract a wider audience.  Page flipper software with audio capability resembling the swoosh sound of a page turning entertains viewers every time. To further engage readers and tech savvy individuals, an icon identification system denotes links to information such as video or audio messages. Chartwells Magazine was designed to be eco-friendly first and foremost, but is created in a high quality print format for promotional purposes by sales and marketing teams. Pages honoring associates or featuring campus dining operations are framed and shared with teams and clients.

Messaging
Each monthly issue contains a candid message from Chartwells' President and CEO, Steve Sweeney, which addresses a range of topics relating to campus dining services and client partnerships. Messaging throughout the national publication focuses on content specific to Chartwells Higher Education's teams and clients.  New innovations, campus dining trends, nutrition news, technology, sharing best culinary practices, and award announcements enlighten readers each month. Individual and team accomplishments are promoted in appreciation of their achievements for improving guest service and operations. Client news includes new dining facility openings or renovations and community support by dining services.

Chartwells' President and CEO, Steve Sweeney added, "Chartwells Magazine is the product of all the great associates and clients who contribute to its success. Our digital newsletter is a publication that represents the importance of every associate and partnership that supports our business. Chartwells is extremely proud to be recognized by the League of American Communications Professionals in the 2012 Magellan Awards Communications Campaign Competition."
