At Blueline, we strive to be a resource for ideas that we feel will benefit the design and print community.  We are fortunate to get a wide angle view as we interact with businesses across North America throughout the year.  One of the themes we often promote is that our industry should not fear digital means of communication but embrace it and collectively learn how to utilize it with print to create a comprehensive marketing plan.  We also want to promote thought leadership and awareness of ways to improve your professional skill set.

Modern Litho, a printing company, headquartered in Missouri’s capital city of Jefferson City, has done a great job embracing digital technology and print.

Modern Litho’s website is sharp graphically, has images of the folks who actually work there, utilizes video to make them more familiar and displays their comprehensive social media platform at the very top of their landing page.  The unspoken message from the way the website is constructed is “we’re ready to communicate, whatever channel you are on.”

A unique offering available through Modern Litho is something they have coined Creativedge™.  It is Adobe® InDesign training presented by a certified expert instructor.

“Print and great design go hand-in-hand. When a piece is designed beautifully and functionally, you realize the full potential of printed communication.  At Modern Litho, we have a culture of learning and often serve in a mentor role for our clients when it comes to file preparation. It was a natural progression for us to continue that tradition and extend valuable education to our clients and the graphic design community through a structured program.  And thus, Creativedge was born, “  remarks Cassandra Atchison, the company’s Marketing Director.

Creativedgeis available through four platforms: Live Virtual Classroom, In-seat at Modern Litho in Jefferson City, on-site for individuals or groups and a customized learning format that can be tailored to your requirements.
