InDesignSecrets Buys InDesign Magazine and CreativePro.com
We’re so pleased to announce that our family has just gotten bigger? and we’d like to introduce you to our new brother and sister: CreativePro.com and InDesign Magazine. Yes, Publishing Secrets (that’s the parent company of InDesignSecrets) just adopted them! (Well, okay, “acquired” might be a better word, but we’re trying to go with the “family” theme here.)
You might have thought that InDesignSecrets published InDesign Magazine, but actually — while David Blatner did co-found it — the magazine has always been owned and operated by CreativePro.com? which was, in turn, owned by Printing For Less. (Actually, the history is even more interesting: Did you know that CreativePro was originally launched by Extensis in 1999?!)
We have all kinds of ideas for both the magazine and the CreativePro.com site, but it’s going to take some time to get those things going. So in the near future you probably won’t notice much of a difference. The very able Mike Rankin continues to be our Editor in Chief for both. Anyone who already has a subscription to the magazine will keep getting it (we’re working on issue 53 now). And all the great columns and articles that you’ve grown to love will keep coming.
We (David Blatner and Anne-Marie Concepcion) have each been involved with computer publishing and educating creative professionals for over 25 years, and it is our mission to bring you the best information about design, graphics, and publishing available anywhere. InDesign is a key part of the equation, of course, but so are Photoshop and Illustrator, fonts and photography, HTML and PDF and EPUB? that’s where CreativePro comes in!
Our live conference, PEPCON: The Print + ePublishing Conference, was our first significant leap. (Remember the next PEPCON will be in Austin in just over a month!) Now, CreativePro and InDesign Magazine allow us to take it to the next level.
If you’re not currently a subscriber to InDesign Magazine, we encourage you to sign up today! It’s a great magazine and will only get better! And, to be honest, subscribing is the primary way you can help support InDesignSecrets (and the thousands of free tips and tricks here on this site).
We look forward to many more years of sharing awesome information with you!
