from the founder

“What began as my passion to share the unique attributes of our state’s creative arts industry, has turned into a thriving business and movement. Our multiple digital platforms now include business leaders seeking to expand their advertising dollar and opportunities, and have connected freelancers with their next job, while promoting educational events for industry veterans and students. We have reinvented and advanced the knowledge and influence of the creative arts in our community and everyday lives using a combination of digital and traditional media. In turn, our success has resulted in deepening our market reach and strengthening the appreciation and enjoyment the public receives through the creative arts.”

The year 2015 has already given RICM another promising year in growth of readership and awareness of our amazing creative community! I am very excited to see what the upcoming months as my goals are starting to take place. I hope you will enjoy and benefit from these new additions to the publication. I will continue to share the news with you as they happen.

The launch of the “Inspirational Speaker Series” was a success! It was definitely an inspiring evening for us all. I am looking forward to the next one in April! The date, time and location will be announced towards the end of this month so stay connected!

The March Issue that you are about to dive into was inspired by the industry that I have a deep passion for – print. With print – there is paper and ink. With paper and ink, there are endless opportunities! As an artist, that is what makes us more creative and to go beyond the four walls.

In this issue, we touch upon the three parts of the industry by sharing amazing content from all kinds of professionals in the business. It goes to show just how much creativity, knowledge and passion there is. Along with our featured businesses, we have provided great tips on paper specs, how to make new traditions, finding the ideal internship and how to attract more website traffic.

I hope you enjoy the sixth issue of volume 3 and to see you at the Artist Loop presentation or Introduction to Publishing Workshop or both this month! I will continue to do my best to help promote and emphasize all the positive creative talent, movements and information here in Rhode Island to pass onto you. Stay connected on all our social networks to know what is going on creatively.
