PCWorld to Fold its Print Publication

PCWorld to Fold its Print Publication

Its the end of an era. After 30 years in print, IDG announced today that they would cease publishing a print edition of PC World in the U.S. to go for a digital-only strategy.

While I was with Don Morris Design were hired to redesign PCWorld magazine twice under the leadership of Creative Director Robert Kanes -- once in 1996 and again in 2001. DMD was hired for the redesign trifecta in 2007. Those redesigns (and style guides) still hold up! The transition away from print is not a suprise, but hopefully an opportunity for PCW to invest in strong, engaging storytelling on their digital network.
