Writing for the magazine will be senior contributing editor Sandee Cohen, author of InDesign CS Visual QuickStart Guide for Macintosh and Windows (Peachpit Press), as well as design and publishing experts such as John D. Berry, Diane Burns, Mordy Golding, Olav Martin Kvern, and more. Creativepro.com’s Pamela Pfiffner, author of Inside the Publishing Revolution: The Adobe Story (Peachpit Press), will serve as editor in chief, a position she has held at magazines such as MacUser and Publish before joining creativepro.com. The Time is Right No product has generated as much buzz and controversy in the publishing industry over the past year as Adobe InDesign. Since its initial release in 1999, InDesign has been creating a stir among many facets of the graphic arts and design communities Now with Adobe InDesign CS and its seamless integration with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, InDesign has been gaining converts within large publishing institutions and small design studios alike. “As a result of Adobe InDesign’s rapid acceptance by publishers and designers, users are hungry for authoritative information. While creativepro.com will continue to be a great resource for InDesign users, we believe the time is right for a targeted publication,” said Pamela Pfiffner, editor in chief of InDesign Magazine. “To ensure that we deliver the best information, we couldn’t ask for a more knowledgeable or respected collaborator than David Blatner,” Pfiffner added. “I haven’t seen so much excitement over software in the publishing industry for a decade,” Blatner said. “InDesign Magazine offers a great way to get the hottest tips, tricks, news, and advice out to users in a timely manner.” Subscriptions and Advertising InDesign Magazine will be available by paid subscription. Bi-monthly issues will be delivered electronically in PDF format. To sign up for a free trial issue, go to the InDesign Magazine Web site at http://www.indesignmag.com.
