Who We Are

Who We Are


My father, Ian Richards, founded Newstyle Print in 1972, having started out with a little press under the verandah at home.

Newstyle is now recognized as one of Australia’s best printers and independent family owned media companies, employing more than 100 people across Newstyle Print and Newstyle Media.

We embrace change and opportunity. In 2012, we bought the award-winning publishing house, Free Run Press. Now called Newstyle Media, we employ over 20 people and have published seven magazines: Adelaide Hills Magazine, Barossa Living, Aspire Magazine, nest. FAMILY. PARENTING. HOME., Parade Magazine, and WBM | Australia’s Wine Business Magazine.

In Decmeber 2016 we have launched Fritz our new South Australian magazine.

The 160-page magazine is set to go where no South Australian publisher has gone before – with a massive print run of 100,000 copies.

Fritz features all that is good about South Australia – including food, wine, events, sport and lifestyle – and is distributed free via self-selection through our partnership with Foodland, a like-minded family firm. Every copy is snapped up and enjoyed with one of our magazines being picked up every 3 minutes.

Newstyle Media is known for our beautiful magazines, and this new publication will take it to a whole new level. We don’t believe anyone has ever printed 100,000 copies of a high quality quarterly magazine in South Australia before – that’s 400,000 magazines distributed per year – guaranteeing extraordinary coverage for your brand.

Complementing the magazines is a 24/7 digital and social media ‘machine’, boosting the mastheads’ profiles in South Australia and beyond.

Our experienced editorial team generates more than 10,000 pieces of compelling content a year for the magazines. These articles are also distributed far and wide online, driving large volumes of traffic to our websites, leading to exponential growth in page views, brand awareness and reader engagement – and of course, maximum exposure and results for our client’s brands.

No other South Australian independent publisher comes close to our digital and social media coverage, but our beautiful printed magazines will always be the heart and soul of what we do. It’s a powerful combination and genuine competitive advantage for us.

To share our story with you, we naturally chose a magazine – Newstyle, which showcases the various things we can do to help your business, including graphic design, photography, copywriting, video production, content marketing, and social media mentoring and management.

Long live beautiful magazines and the endless digital possibilities that are elevating their status in business circles and the wider community to an exciting new level.

Newstyle no longer fits under my dad’s verandah. We have a state of the art and one of the most technologically-advanced digital and offset printing locations in Miles End, and a creative hub for our publishing and marketing agency in a warehouse on Gilbert Street, Adelaide.

What hasn’t changed in 45 years, however, is our commitment to quality and service.
