What It Is

Newmanize is personal one-on-one design, brand, and career therapy for individuals, organizations, companies, magazines, or anyone who needs some creative help. Robert Newman will draw on his 25+ years of magazine making, staff direction, and brand development to consult with you in any of a wide variety of areas. Whether you need help with career strategy, problem-solving at a current job, developing your own social media network, reviewing and updating your portfolio and resume, advice on magazine, website, or app projects, this is an opportunity for valuable feedback and information.

Sessions range from practical, hands-on nuts-and-bolts to inspiring mini-workshops that will jump start your creativity. There are also half-day and day-long sessions for organizations, businesses, and magazines.

This is a great service whether you’re just starting out, an experienced professional who’s looking for some advice and upgrading, or somewhere right in the middle. And if you’re an organization or publication, it can be a much-needed boost of creativity to help solve a problem or analyze ongoing work.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Art direction and design
  • Career coaching and development
  • Magazine design, redesign, and content creation
  • Branding for media of all kinds
  • Social media
  • Portfolio and website review
  • Resume creation and editing
  • Apps
  • Staff and management
  • Website development

How It Works

You can sign up for a one (or multiple) hour session, or a series, as well as ongoing consultation and half-day and day-long sessions. Remote consultation for people not in the New York City area is simple and easy.
