Printmag.com is Back—New Owners Continue to Publish
December 10, 2019—New York, NY—Today Print magazine, an online authority on graphic, interactive and brand design and their influences on visual culture, announces new ownership and its continued presence in the graphic arts industry. The Print brand and Printmag.com was acquired by Print Holdings LLC comprised of industry veterans, Debbie Millman, Steven Heller, Andrew Gibbs, Jessica Deseo, Deb Aldrich and Laura Des Enfants. The site will continue to publish its legacy site including up-to-date Daily Heller columns until 2020 when a new format will launch under the vision and guidance of this ownership team.
Print began publishing in 1940 as Print, A Quarterly Journal of the Graphic Arts led by William Edwin Rudge to demonstrate, in his words, the far-reaching importance of the graphic arts. And while Printwill continue to identify and analyze important trends, history and insights from thought leaders in the industry, the online magazine will begin to include an expanded 21st century view of design and its contribution to our world.
Print Holdings, LLC is comprised of a team of six industry professionals each bringing expertise to the table. This team holds expertise in design editorial and commentary; creating, building and running a successful web presence; and selling and implementing advertising and promotional opportunities for members of the creative professional community.
Print (founded 1940) is an iconic design and visual culture brand serving as the go-to industry resource for design dialogue and inspiration, design education, profiles of leading design minds and everything in between. Through a top-ranking website and social media platforms, The Daily Heller column, and one of the most well-respected design competitions in the industry—the Print Regional Design Awards—Print has been the leading authority on all things design today. Relaunched in 2020, Print continues to build a dialogue about design by detailing the intersections of art and culture. Rather than focusing on the how-to of design, Print’s content covers the why—why the world of design looks the way it does, how it has evolved, and why the way it looks matters
