The Industry Speaks Out
The Rumours of our Death…. by Dean Baxendale President, JF Moore.
I remember my first job in magazine publishing in Vancouver Canada in 1978. Fresh out of college I joined Southam Communications as a young Advertising Account Manager. It was around the time of the Wang Word Processor and the first Compuset typesetting machines. At the time, both technologies were transforming the magazine and book publishing landscape as we moved from legacy processes to the future, but these new technologies were quickly usurped by word processors and then desk top publishing (The Mac), which ushered in another revolution for our collective industries.
As a writer, a publisher and AD sales person, I have seen a lot of change over the past 35 years in business and consumer publishing. During that time, I was constantly reminded that I would have a short Ad Sales career; given that magazines and publishing would soon be dead due to the paperless office. A lot of pundits of the 50’s 60’s and 70’s have predicted print’s death and yet there are more pages being printed each day, than there were during an entire year in 1960. Nonetheless, this has resulted in speed to market requirements that are unprecedented by yesterday’s production paradigms. To be competitive today, you need a partner who understands your need to reduce cost and deliver the finest print communications product you can on time, every time.
