Thrive, a Central New York lifestyle magazine, explores the politics, science, culture, sex, social issues, dining and leisure for residents of the Syracuse area between the ages of 18 and 30. The purpose of the magazine is to inform and educate in an unpretentious way about the positive aspects of living in CNY by talking to young residents using departments like the “Best of CNY,” “Single in CNY,” “CNY Traveler,” “Bucket List,” and an assortment of feature stories. The demographics for the audience are educated men and women between the ages of 18 and 30, single or married with no kids. The informal voice of Thrive and its approach to CNY through the lens of a twentysomething makes the magazine unique to the area. Thrive seeks to help young CNYers both imagine and create a life and home in the Central New York area. The magazine design was created using Indesign CS5, the standard digital publishing and layout software for the industry and printed using the Finger Lakes Press Group.
