R.I.P.: Some examples of covers from the days of print, April 2007 - September 2008
En Prise began as an event promotion, influencer marketing and artist development company in late 2006, but soon took over the print magazine UR Chicago in early 2007. En Prise re-branded and re-vamped UR Chicago, broadened and enriched its editorial content, featured original artwork on each cover, and even improved the quality of its paper. After a year and a half of publishing through an increasingly bad recession, with paper prices going up and print advertising dollars going down, En Prise decided to turn their free publication into an online-only property rather than decrease the quality and quantity of the physical magazine.
Since late 2008, UR Chicago has continued on as a vibrant and independently-owned and operated online property with up to 10,000 unique visitors per month and an e-list of over 25,000 active, double opt-in subscribers. In addition to the site, UR has branched out into social media and is actively involved in event/brand booking, marketing, and promotion. Past and present clients include: The Art Institute of Chicago (AFTER DARK Series), Diesel, Adidas, Puma, Bushmills, Tito's Handcrafted Vodka, Vitamin Water, Goose Island, FUZE, Rockstar Games, Dub Frequency, Caesar's Entertainment, and more!
