Digital New York Magazine Launches Premiere Issue
Posted on May 27, 1999Digital New York Magazine has announced that its premiere issue is available in locations throughout the city and by subscription. The complimentary issue is available in Kinko's, Tower Records and Barnes & Noble stores in New York and surrounding areas. The glossy, bi-monthly magazine targets creative professionals and managers in print, video, multimedia, new media, and other emerging industries of Silicon Alley.
"Most computer magazines are still a little too enamored with shiny things," said Todd Stauffer, managing editor of Digital New York. "What's cool about technology isn't the technology itself, it's what we do with it."
The premiere issue's cover story, "Search for Designer's Gold," takes a look at Web resources for quick access to stock photography and fonts. The issue also features the basics of digital video including the hardware essentials, getting the video into a computer, and a quick look at blue-screen compositing. Other topics include transitioning your office to USB and FireWire, living life on the "Web's Bleeding Edge" and a feature on high-profile Web redesigns by Cosmopolitan magazine, IBM, Feed Magazine and Mutual of New York. Future issues will include local stories on digital fashion photography, designing promotional items, and profiles of real-world digital design firms.
