The mission of the Creative Outreach Subcommittee is to prepare outreach efforts to involve the creative community and educate them on best practices for print production processes. The Creative Outreach Subcommittee will try to ‘translate’ technologically sophisticated, challenging and complicated documents into simpler and more easily understandable language.

Current Activites

Currently, the Creative Outreach Subcommittee is working on the updating and upgrading of the GWG webpage content, preparation of the GWG iconography and identification and creation of simplefied relevant documents on best practices for print production processes.

All suggestions, recommendations, opinions and thoughts are more than welcome.
