2015 Salute to Small Business Champions
The Rhode Island Creative Magazine’s mission is to make Rhode Island’s creative industry, and Providence, its Creative Capital, shine! This truly unique one-of-a-kind publication is an important resource that will create awareness of the outstanding creative talent of Rhode Island, attract and expand business opportunities, create jobs, promote local education, small and large businesses, organizations, designers, artists, printers, writers, students and others who are (and will be) an equally important resource for our economy.
For the May issue, I wanted to discuss a topic that is currently of great interest to most of our state’s businesses, and RICM as well. “Media Communications” has become a key factor in running a successful business today. It is the core of running a successful business. For some of us, it is our business and for others, it is a must-have to survive. In this issue, we have displayed a variety of professions that rely upon a strong media communications practice. We have also featured other uses of media communication from the past and current times of film, video, print and publishing. www.ricreativemag.com
