The Christian Science Monitor‘s Digital Transformation, Alternate Layout in InDesign CS6, WPA Conference 2012, PEPCON, Webby Awards

Welcome to TFP’s weekly roundup of interesting and noteworthy stories from the publishing world. This week we’re discussing The Christian Science Monitor‘s digital transformation, the Alternate Layout feature in InDesign CS6, the WPA Conference 2012, and more.

  • Poynter put together a great piece on The Christian Science Monitor and its digital transformation over the past three years. The magazine moved from a daily print edition to a weekly, shifting daily operations to the web. The result? Traffic and revenues are rising.
  • One of the most anticipated features in the release of InDesign CS6 was the Alternate Layout function. Alternate Layout allows designers to create multiple versions of the same layout for different formats or devices, within a single InDesign file, saving time and increasing efficiency. Watch Adobe evangelist Terry White demonstrate the feature for Adobe TV.
  • The Western Publishing Association (WPA) hosted its annual conference last week, and Folio magazine provided a helpful, concise recap of the event’s best content.
  • PEPCON: The Print + ePublishing Conference is fast approaching, and we’re looking forward to attending. If you’ve been on the fence about whether you’ll make the trip to San Fransisco, maybe a discount would help sway you? When registering, enter PANCAKE at checkout and receive a $25 discount.
  • National Geographic and Wired were among the winners of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences 16th Annual Webby Awards, announced this week. Each Webby Award category has two winners, the Webby Award winner and the Webby People’s Voice Award winner. The best magazine site category winners were Condé Nast’s Wired, for the Webby Award, and National Geographic, for the People’s Voice Award.
