Editorial and design proofing cycles. File structure and management. Pre-press. Printing. Digital Go-Live. We have years of experience working on the front lines of publication production.
When technology serves the process, and not vice versa, it becomes possible to write goal-focused production schedules that reliably meet business needs.
We’ve written thousands of overlapping production schedules and managed the day-to-day operations of national and international editorial teams to successful publication.
HR Management Consultation
The discovery processes we use during our analysis provide valuable insight into the goals, motivations and frustrations that affect your team.
Understanding these dynamics can prove invaluable to human resource professionals seeking to increase job satisfaction and retention.
We create tools that support streamlined publication production without getting in the way of creativity. Inspired by the Alan Cooper approach to interaction design, we craft workflow tools that minimize “cognitive friction.”
This means usable, intuitive software that makes your job easier, less manual, and more fun.
