Quark announced that JAHR TOP SPECIAL VERLAG, the European leader in the “special interest” magazines sector, is publishing its periodical printed media and numerous special editions using QuarkXPress 7.
At its headquarters in Hamburg, some 160 employees produce 22 periodicals, including AngelWoche with a circulation of 68,428 copies, Blinker with a circulation of 73,388 and fotoMAGAZIN with a circulation of 49,732 copies, along with the journals tauchen, segeln, GOLFmagazin and other titles on outdoor, sport and leisure interests.
Klaus Stenzel, IT Manager at JAHR TOP SPECIAL VERLAG is excited about both the creative functions and productivity of QuarkXPress 7:
“Our graphic designers substantially benefit from the design potential afforded by the new features, such as the color-based transparencies, drop shadows and the typographic possibilities included in OpenType support,” Stenzel said. “Finally, the functions for shared content help us work more efficiently and therefore save a lot of time. Upgrading to QuarkXPress 7 went off without a hitch….”
