Subscriptions

I hate when I subscribe to a magazine I used to just buy every month myself then suddenly I have to wait three months while their subscriptions department gets itself together.

New Year, Strep Throat, Media Kits

January 12, 2008

It was one illness after another in our house this holiday season. Flu followed immediately by strep throat. I never saw my own tonsils before, but they had swollen so large they were almost touching! Nasty. Had an opportunity to re-design the media kit for my full-time job magazine, which was fun. It was necessary as almost all our staff were at CES this past week, including the sales staff, and I think the previous version had been created in 1982! I was all for creating a digital version of the media kit that we could email to clients as well, like I have for many of my own clients, but alas, the powers that be deemed it unnecessary and a waste of time. Such a shame, there’s so much you can do with a simple PDF nowadays to make the reader experience so much more than just another boring media kit.
