Meanwhile, content marketing is catching on in the sportswear industry, with a major European brand launching a new campaign with a suite of printed travel books. Interestingly, Thames & Hudson was a partner in the print project, suggesting that content marketing in the traditional print publishing industry is entering a new era.
