Quark Launches 58 City QuarkXPress 8 Global Tour

Quark Invites Creatives Around World to Xperience Design with QuarkXPress 8

DENVER - 7/3/2008 -

Quark, Inc., announced today that it will host a 58 city tour to introduce its recently launched QuarkXPress 8 to creative professionals around the world. The tour officially kicked off last week with a first-ever customer event at the company’s global headquarters in Denver and will run until October. Attendees from Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, the United States, and Latin America will have the unique opportunity to be amongst the first in the world to discover the enhanced design experience of QuarkXPress 8.

QuarkXPress 8 delivers superior design power through a new, intuitive interface developed purposefully for the creation of high-end page layout; print, Web and Flash® authouring tools; design-driven typography; and global publishing capabilities - all of which enable designers to push creativity to its limits with confidence and control. QuarkXPress 8 offers users an enhanced design experience so they can work faster and smarter by quickly and easily accessing the tools they need. The new, intuitive interface delivers updates that allow for more design with fewer clicks.

The QuarkXPress 8 Xperience Design Global Tour will offer participants the chance to discover the new, modern, and intuitive interface of QuarkXPress 8 as well as learn how to apply their design skills across print, the Web, and to Flash®. Attendees will also learn how the new tools in QuarkXPress 8, including native Illustrator® file import, improved picture, illustration, and text tools, fully customisable hanging characters, and design grids, will enable them to work faster and smarter.

"We’ve had an amazing response to the recent launch of QuarkXPress 8 at drupa in Germany and from customers and media around the world. We want to share this excitement across the globe so that attendees in every region can discover the modern, new QuarkXPress and benefit from this enhanced design experience," said Terry Welty, Sr. VP Corporate Marketing. "It’s also a great opportunity for attendees to meet with fellow designers, creative professionals, industry influencers, and their local Quark Team. Now with its easy support for global publishing and QuarkXPress 8 being the first ever simultaneous global release of QuarkXPress, a Global Tour was an obvious choice."
