CreativePro and InDesignSecrets Merge
CreativePro Network, Inc. (CPN) announced today that it is merging InDesignSecrets.com and InDesign Magazine into its flagship portal for creative professionals, CreativePro.com.
Over 130,000 free and paid members of InDesignSecrets will be automatically migrated to become members of CreativePro.com. Those who receive the monthly InDesign Magazine will continue to receive it through the new site. And, as members of CreativePro.com, they will also receive additional benefits, such as bonus downloads, templates, and discounts to online events and ebooks.
“Most InDesign users also use Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, and many other tools,” explained David Blatner, CEO of CreativePro Network and co-founder of InDesignSecrets. “It makes sense for CreativePro to offer a one-stop resource for tutorials, tips, in-depth articles and videos about all these apps, plus fonts, presentation design, and more!”
CreativePro.com — which has been publishing “how-to” articles and tutorials for graphic designers and communications professionals since 1999 — has undergone a complete redesign for better readability and searchability. Plus, free and paid members can now “favorite” articles to easily refer to them again.
Over 2,500 free articles, podcasts, templates, and other resources from InDesignSecrets.com have been added to the CreativePro library, along with 1,000+ member-only tutorials, back issues of InDesign Magazine, and premium downloadable files. With over 15,000 posts, CreativePro.com is one of the largest archives of graphic design “how to” material on the Web.
David Blatner and Anne-Marie Concepción started InDesignSecrets.com as a podcast and blog in 2006, and acquired InDesign Magazine, The InDesign Conference, and CreativePro in 2013.
In 2017, they launched an annual event, CreativePro Week, which brings together experts from around the world to teach “how to” skills for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, PowerPoint, and more. Over 800 attendees from six continents attended the online version of CreativePro Week this year, and over 1,500 are expected for the combination live and online conference, livestreaming from Washington, DC, in May, 2021.
Today, CreativePro.com is the cornerstone of CreativePro Network’s wide platform of information resources, including online training at the new CreativePro University, two YouTube channels, thriving community groups on Facebook and LinkedIn, online events, and more.
