In recent years, there have been a number of studies on how powerfully music can affect us. Psychologists and scientists have been looking at the link between music and mood, work efficiency and concentration for years. Music can stimulate learning, improve concentration, enhance cognitive performance, boost productivity, motivation, and endurance, and even affect your memory.

Most designers have hundreds of fonts, if not thousands. Having a font manager is not only critical for productivity, but making the most of the collection.

Earlier this month, we announced FontLink, an all-new module for Universal Type Server. FontLink examines and gathers fonts for Adobe® InDesign® documents before they are handed off to InDesign Server, removing manual document processing tasks for output.
This Thursday I will host a live Webcast, giving a tour of the new module.
- Thursday, April 23
- 11:00 a.m. Pacific; 2:00 p.m. Eastern
- Register here.
Join me and you will learn how:
- To alleviate missing & incorrect font-related pains in automated workflows
- FontLink automates font preflighting
- To ensure precise font usage, even in complex workflows
- Universal Type Server serves fonts to designers & publishing systems
At the end of the presentation, my colleague Chris Meyer (Product Manager for Font Management Solutions) and I will be available to answer your questions.
If you cannot attend but are interested, please register and the recording will be sent to you after the event.
I hope you can join us!
