Providing news, blogs, views and reviews from more than 400 outlets within the industry, Graphicstart is the destination for the print and new media sector.
Graphicstart has quickly risen as the creative industry's source for relevant content. By embracing the power of RSS (Really Simple Syndicate) Graphicstart offers an intuitive approach to organizing the wealth of information on the Internet. The "MyPortal" section of this web resource eliminates the need for a list of bookmarks. Simply add and categorize articles and sites worthy of interest to you!
Graphicstart is much more than just a site for statically listing news, it takes advantage of Web 2.0 culture and social environments. Features of the site include: a rating system based on users votes, and a powerful search feature to the site's rich database of graphic arts data.
Today, specific and useful data, updated by the minute is important for designers and prepress professionals. To help facilitate the transfer of information, Graphicstart employs a "Watch" feature, that alerts the user via an email (and associated RSS feed if desired) when special keywords and other relevant content has been found across the site.
Currently, GraphicStart has millions of database entries and whenever keyword searches are executed, as an example, 'FlightCheck' the result will be directly related to to the graphic arts sector, not an unrelated sector, such as aviation as other search engines readily produce.
Within the 'Articles Section,' one will find useful resources, such as all graphic arts shows listings for 2008. As an example, the "Drupa 2008 Watch" page and associated RSS feed, Graphic Art Show Listing page are currently receiving many views per day.
