August 2014 newsletter

Back to Publishing and Graphic Design SIG webpage.

Hello ACE Publishing and Graphic Design Members!  

We hope your summer has been a great one! Now, it’s time to start thinking about the new year.

We Want Your Feedback! 

This newsletter includes several questions for you. We’ve created an online survey to make it easy to respond: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/G8MY7Y8. You’re also welcome to simply reply to this email.   

The Communicator’s Handbook
ACE President Joanne Littlefield recently proposed that we update
The Communicator’s Handbook. We'd really like to know if you think it should be updated (and if you’re willing to help) or if it should be archived. Your feedback will help us provide an informed, accurate response to the ACE board and SIG director about this project.   

Professional Development
We’re currently working on a couple of professional development webinars. Becky Theller (
goetz@purdue.edu) is taking the lead on a session about app development; please contact her if you’re interested in working on this.   

The second session is in partnership with members of the Electronic Media and Photography SIG. The tentative topic is best practices for working with photographers. If you are interested in working on this session, please contact Ana (ahenke@nmsu.edu).  

Google Hangouts
In addition to instructional webinars, we’re looking at doing Google Hangouts on topics of interest. These would be open, moderated discussions, and would be a great alternative to more formal, labor-intensive webinars. Please let us know if you are interested in participating in or hosting a Hangout. If/when other SIGs schedule Hangouts, we will let you know so you can participate!  

Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/59824301547/
Please feel free to share content on our Facebook page that both interests and inspires you about writing, graphic design, publishing, art, etc.!    

Resource recommendations
As you come across useful resources, please share them with us and we will include them in a future newsletter and on Facebook.  
Fall SIG report Our annual fall report to the ACE board has been submitted and will be posted to our SIG webpage shortly.
