Multiplatform publishing, Adobe InDesign tutorials & more!

We love sharing our periodical design, marketing and publishing knowledge with publishers. Use these videos (including our growing list of Adobe InDesign tutorials and multiplatform publishing videos) to help you figure out what’s not working in your publishing program and to improve upon whatever is!

Agnes, our resident layout design expert, does most of our InDesign tutorials on periodical layout and covers.

Vee (our CEO) does the other videos covering magazine business issues like in our multiplatform publishing videos, as well as periodical marketing and technical strategy. If you have a special request for the next Adobe Indesign tutorials we tackle, drop us a line to let us know your sore spots!

We also do periodical publishing interviews from time to time with people in key roles within or surrounding the periodical publishing industry. Are you a publisher? A layout designer? An editor? Got questions? Contact us to talk about whether you might be a fit for a video interview/chat session. Want to keep your privacy? We can omit your name and publication name, if desired. We can even omit your face and voice. It’s one way to get free and in-depth consulting for your publishing company, magazine, product catalog, company magazine or annual report!

Our interviews are not limited to Adobe InDesign tutorials, but can potentially be on any industry topic. If you’d like to explore more about how to get your multiplatform publilshing into gear, consider doing a multiplatform publishing video with us that answers all your model questions
