Recap of November 2019 Event: Creative Workflow Solutions

Our November luncheon featured four presenters, each one highlighting a different tool that has helped their company work more efficiently.

Amy Fitzgerald (editorial director for Carolrhoda Books at Lerner Publishing Group) shared her insights on using Word’s style templates to save time on production. David Farr (principal of graphic design and art direction at ImageSmythe) presented instructions for using InDesign’s new features to easily incorporate marked-up PDF changes. Kat Sanborn (senior publicist at Llewellyn Worldwide) gave the audience a glimpse into the many project management uses for Airtable. And finally, Layne Johnson (senior project manager for 1517 Media) shared how Pressbooks has allowed her company to move certain books into layout more efficiently while channeling more intense graphic design resources to other areas of their publishing program.

All four presenters shared real-world success stories, and an audience Q&A allowed attendees the chance to explore how these tools might be of use in their own workflows.
