Playboy Takes Next Step in Major Brand Re-Alignment with Transformative Changes to Its Flagship Magazine

Playboy Enterprises Inc. announced on Oct. 13 that, following last summer’s highly successful relaunch of Playboy.com as a safe-for-work site, it is taking the next step in its brand evolution by making transformative changes to its flagship property, Playboy magazine. Playboy’s editorial team is in the midst of a top-to-bottom redesign that will be unveiled with the magazine’s March 2016 issue. The reimagined Playboy magazine will include a completely modern editorial and design approach, and, for the first time in its history, will no longer feature nudity in its pages. Playboy will continue to publish sexy, seductive pictorials of the world’s most beautiful women, including its iconic Playmates, all shot by some of today’s most renowned photographers. The magazine will also remain committed to its award-winning mix of long-form journalism, interviews and fiction. See the full release to learn more about the changes at Playboy.
