To paraphrase my fellow countryman, TV’s Craig Ferguson, “It’s a great day for Digital Publishing”.
Back in July we talked about a new Digital Magazine Solution that our publishing team were busy working on. Today, we announced The Digital Publishing Suite and it is now available for early preview at Adobe Labs. Adobe InDesign CS5 is central to this new digital publishing workflow and you’ll need this software to start using the tools – and begin prototyping your digital publications.
Today also saw our friends at Conde Nast choose the new Digital Publishing Suite for digital magazine production – check out the news here. This follows on the launch of WIRED Magazine earlier this year, and the recent debut of The New Yorker on the iPad. If you haven’t seen it, The New Yorker, being The New Yorker, persuaded Jason Schwartzman to introduce their new digital edition via video……with typical Manhattan aplomb. BTW, luxuriant ‘tache Jason! Me? I’m looking forward to Vogue going digital myself.
But that’s not all. Today at our MAX customer event in Los Angeles, Martha Stewart appeared on stage to announce that her iconic magazine is also going digital thanks to Adobe technologies. There’s a sneak peek of Martha’s upcoming digital edition, here.
All in all, a great day for digital publishing – at Adobe and across the publishing industry.
