It’s me, Mike Rankin, Editor in Chief of CreativePro.com. For those of you who don’t know me, here’s a photo from today’s CreativePro staff meeting (I’m the one on the right).
Just wanted to take moment to say hi (and thank you for visiting CreativePro) and to let you know a little bit about what’s going on with the site.
This year has been one full of changes for CreativePro. First and most importantly, we got new owners. Back in April, CreativePro (along with InDesign Magazine) became part of the Creative Publishing Network. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with David Blatner and Anne-Marie Concepción on a daily basis. These folks have a fantastic vision for what CreativePro can be, plus the expertise and energy to make it happen.
Secondly, the look of CreativePro changed rather dramatically earlier this year. We upgraded a lot of the back end stuff and freshened up the front end as well. We’re far from finished, and you’ll see many more improvements in both the look and the functionality of the site in the weeks and months to come.
We’ve also made some changes in the content we bring you. We’re expanding our group of authors, adding many fresh faces to familiar old friends, so we’ll have have more original (and awesome) content than ever.
Finally, we really want your feedback. Commenting on articles is easier than ever. No more annoying captcha to prove you’re a human.
And no more waiting for your comment to be approved. As long as you’re not a spammer, your comments are posted immediately. So go ahead, add a comment below (or email me) to let me know what you think about anything—the look of the site, the content, what you want to see more (or less) of, and especially how we can make CreativePro even better for you!
