Designer Friendly Directory

At the start of every year, we spotlight roughly 100 companies and organizations providing first-rate products and services to creative professionals, adding value and finding solutions, communicating and standing behind our community and, more often than not, taking environmental and social responsibility seriously.

Companies who understand the creative mind have always been rare but, in more than a half-century of publishing, it is hard to remember a time when they have been more scarce. Changing technologies and tightening economics are creating dislocations, established brands are dropping faster than oil prices, certain segments of design are growing and others are shrinking, and many companies who once embraced the magnificent – and still robust – graphic design market have lost their focus. That makes the 2015 roster even more selective and deserving of recognition.

In the current listing, you will find treasures: paper mills and distributors, commercial and digital printers, stock agencies and type houses, hardware and software companies, recruiters and consultants, trade shows and industry associations, myriad goods and service providers. These are smart and motivated organizations who “get it” – that your success is their success – and who have the commitment and resources to invest in the creative community.

Included are company and organizational overviews, new developments of note, and contact information for buyers and specifiers. Not included are schools: they receive their own spotlight in the March/April edition.

Why does all this matter? Because in an age of interdependence, collaboration and the blurring of design and production, you are only as good as your tools, your technologies, your services, your vendors, your knowledge and your information.
