Before & After is awesome!!
Before & After magazine is a wonderful tool for graphic designers. The format in which they present problems and solutions that take graphic design work from good to great is superb. I'm glad to see them on iTunes!
John McWade is amazing.
John McWade's voice is so calm I could hear him talking all day, it's a joy to watch Before & After videos and learn those awesome tips!
We've been subscribing to B&A for eons -- probably since the beginning or close to. Even as seasoned communicators, these gems are wonderful little nudges when you need a creative twist. I often pull out the library and flip through when I'm just looking for ideas. Love the fact they're in video now. Woohoo!
