Case study for RIBA J

A successful print and online magazine RIBA J wanted to expand its output to include podcasting.

Training with Quattrain and Rosie Bartlett showed us we could turn our print storytelling skills into professional podcasts with RIBAJ Meets. Rosie’s coaching and support as a producer has been invaluable from insight into the process, to grabbing the moment.

  • Action

    RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) wanted to complement its online and print output with a series of podcasts, to provide inside tracks into a variety of architectural practices, to benefit its members. The team lacked the technical and production skills in-house to carry this out.

  • Solution

    Quattrain was commissioned deliver a one-day podcasting training course for the whole editorial team, to widen the skills base. In addition, Quattrain was commissioned to produce and record three initial podcasts and promotional material. Listen to the podcasts here

  • Engagement

    The RIBA editorial production and leadership team attended a practical London based podcasting course. Quattrain then worked with the Executive Editors of the RIBA Journal, coaching them through presentation, recorded onsite and studio interviews, edited and mixed the podcasts for iTunes, Soundcloud and Spotify.
