2013-02-25 13:52:25

Companies to showcase digital publishing solutions and services for web, tablet and mobile at the Publishing & Media Expo February 26-27   Montpellier, France - February 25, 2013 - Aquafadas, innovative developer of digital publishing solutions and creative software for HTML5 creation, has recently partnered with AT Graphics, a creative production agency in digital, print and web. Together, the companies will be showcasing the Aquafadas Digital Publishing System in conjunction with AT Graphics services at the Publishing & Media Expo February 26-27 at Earls Court Two, London at stand C49. As part of the new partnership, AT Graphics offers expert Aquafadas design services and support in many different capacities, from Aquafadas Digital Publishing training to full digital publishing design support. “Our services essentially allow publishers to concentrate on their business strategy without the drawbacks of managing expensive production operations,” says Robert Tipping, managing director at AT Graphics.   The Aquafadas Digital Publishing System used by AT Graphics and to be showcased at the Publisher & Media Expo encompasses Adobe InDesign and QuarkXPress plug-ins, AVE AppFactory, and the Publisher Porter. Aquafadas’ plug-ins provide total control over the design of a publication. AVE AppFactory facilitates the process of publishing apps, with free tools to guide users every step of the way. Aquafadas’ Publisher Portal, an online service for distribution and sales management as well as marketing analytics, complements and links AVE AppFactory and InDesign/QuarkXPress plug-ins, creating one robust suite of publishing tools. AT Graphics CTO James Tipping comments, “We've traditionally used QuarkXPress and InDesign for our print output, so the fact that the Aquafadas tools plugged straight into them made everything fairly simple. The ease of use is important for traditional print designers. To build the content wrapper, App Factory has a nice UI and is easy to use.”   “We hope to continue to drive the products forward and increase the availability for platforms beyond iOS,” James Tipping continues, “We want to be able to dovetail each other’s business together to bring a better digital offering to the UK market for both books and magazines, in whichever form they shall exist in the future. We are able to supply the Aquafadas tools to publishers with their own capabilities for digital offerings, but who need the valuable experience that we have gained thus far.”   About Publishing & Media Expo Established in 2005, Publishing & Media Expo is the UK’s leading event dedicated to defining the future of publishing.
