Please allow me to introduce Andrea Astolfi as a new author for planetquark.com:
Andrea studied graphics arts in Turin and has worked for a major Italian publisher until 1997. Since then he is a a self-employed designer.
Andrea’s specialty is long documents and he has a huge experience in QuarkXPress and other desktop publishing applications. Furthermore, Andrea really is a jack of all trades in graphics art and everything else around it: For example, he creates his own fonts and is developing databases using FileMaker.
Looking forward to read his first post (using Google Translate ;-)
Both an engineer and a layout artist, Matthias bridges the gap between technology and people.
Before joining Quark, Matthias pioneered print, Web, and multimedia products for multiple German publishing companies. Since 1997 he has played a central role in shaping Quark’s desktop and enterprise software.
Starting 2003 Matthias has focused on Quark’s interactive and digital publishing solutions. He is an active participant in design and publishing communities and represents Quark in the Ghent PDF Workgroup.
Since February 2014 Matthias heads Quark’s Desktop Publishing business unit and is therefore responsible for QuarkXPress.
