PACPRINT VIDEO: Design and prepress outsource
CMYKhub is showcasing its Design Desk online subscription, graphic design and prepress platform, which it says will enable print businesses to outsource the functions on demand.
Design Desk was launched 18 months ago, and CMYKhub says it aims to provide the print industry with access to a whole team of graphic designers and prepress operators at the click of a button. It says this service fills the void left post-pandemic of many creative staff that were forced to move on, or reduce their hours, in the wake of business downturn. Design Desk has also provided many businesses, including designers and creative agencies, the ability to scale quickly at a low cost.
The multi-level monthly subscription web platform connects the Australian visual media industry to CMYKhub’s team of qualified designers. Users select from the list of services, whether it be adding bleed to existing artwork, or creating a printed product from scratch. CMYKhub says collaboration with the design team is easy via the Design Desk workflow. It says anyone can instantly become a creative director to manage their artwork without any formal training.
