Design Community (F+W Media)
At the Heart of the Design Community are two long-standing design magazines that can be found in nearly every design firm lobby, and on professional graphic designers’ coffee tables around the world.
As Director of SEO for F+W Media, I worked with my team to optimize 8 websites (as much as we could in 2 months), and taught a team of editors how to conduct keyword research, optimize their blog posts, build internal links, and look for other link building opportunities. Our focus from this point on is to build optimized landing pages for the community, such as their Gifts for Designers page on their store.
Founded in 1985, the HOW brand began as a print-form design magazine. Having evolved beyond simply an award-winning design magazine, the HOW brand offers various products and events created to serve the creativity, business and technological needs of graphic designers around the country (and world)…serving both design firms and in-house design departments.
Find everything from design career advice and design jobs, design business tips, design blogs, design competitions and design awards, design creativity. Plenty of design resources proven to help professionals of any type and location.
Founded in 1940 by William Edwin Rudge, and now owned by F+W Media, Print is a bimonthly graphic design magazine dedicated to showcasing extraordinary visual design in our culture, both on and off the page. Covering everything from magazine and book design to animation, corporate logos, rock ‘n roll posters, street art and more, Print uncovers the intricacies of commercial, social, and environmental design from every viewpoint. Print explores the visual qualities of our world, and why that matters.
