The Mill Magazine has created a layout that interests and encourages readers to explore each page. By focusing the ads on one item, one person, or one story, the audience is able to retain more information. Drawn to this unique, storytelling advertising style, the consumer reads page after page without feeling like they are being sold to and automatically rejecting the ad before even actually looking at it. This encourages the audience to repeatedly view the ad and increases the number of impressions, so they actually recall the business name.
