Since the acquisition by La Nacion, impreMedia’s efforts have been focused on transforming the company into a sustainable and successful business. Beyond the traditional printed products that have seen redesigns, impreMedia claims to have grown exponentially with its digital offerings and developed an in-house market solutions division called IM Studio ñ focused on providing client centric services, strategic consultation, creative and content marketing.
