PlanetQuark.com: The First and Only Independent Website for QuarkXPress Users
PlanetQuark.com has arrived as the first independent website dedicated to QuarkXPress and other Quark products. When QuarkXPress 7 was released last year, it created a groundswell of renewed interest in Quark's products, and PlanetQuark.com was developed to support users of the new version, as well as users of previous versions of QuarkXPress.
"We are pleased to see the launch of Planet Quark, which we think our customers will appreciate having as an independent, third-party source for information on Quark and our products," said Jürgen Kurz, senior vice president, product management, Quark. "I personally have known Jay Nelson for years and believe Planet Quark couldn't be helmed by more experienced, objective leadership."
PlanetQuark.com features daily posts that cover news about Quark products, as well as tips, tutorials, feature articles, bug reports, XTensions, and more. A Job Board collects employment opportunities for QuarkXPress users all across the United States. And users can subscribe to an RSS feed to have Planet Quark stories delivered directly to their desktop.
Planet Quark's editorial director is Jay Nelson, who has been active in the Quark community since 1987. Nelson is a well-respected industry veteran and the editor and publisher of Design Tools Monthly, a unique newsletter he founded in 1992. He is also a sought-after speaker and writer for graphic arts magazines.
Nelson comments: "If there was ever a time for a website dedicated to QuarkXPress users, this is it. Quark is an entirely new company, QuarkXPress 7 is a knockout and Quark's two-million-plus active users are clamoring for knowledge about how to make the most of it. I'm happy to be helping both new and veteran users learn what they can do with the latest versions of QuarkXPress."
