NCM celebrates PMP‘s 90th Anniversary with a brand redesign and special 13th edition

CLEVELAND, OHIO — Jan. 1, 2023 — Celebrating 90 years of covering pest control, business-to-business (B2B) media brand Pest Management Professional (PMP) is unveiling its brand redesign. It offers a modern look for PMP’s logo, and print, digital, and social media content, as well as expanded information supporting the professional pest control community’s success. Additionally, parent company North Coast Media (NCM) is publishing a special 13th edition commemorating the 90th anniversaries of PMP and the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) in 2023.

PMP’s redesign encompasses its magazine, website, e-newsletters, social media, and networking events. The redesign features: a refreshened, brighter color palette to make PMP even more captivating and to aid in navigation cover to cover; a blend of updated typefaces and a larger font size to aid in readability of body copy; plus a bevy of bonus PMP– and supplier-requested content.

“The PMP brand will deliver more technical content than ever before to help pest control businesses thrive, plus it all will be presented in ways that make it more captivating, intuitive and approachable,” says PMP Editor-in-Chief Heather Gooch.
