Ghent PDF Workgroup Entering Seventh Year with Newly-Elected Officers and Revamped
GHENT BELGIUM—July 21, 2008—Access to the comprehensive, best practice workflow specifications and resources are now easier than ever for printers, prepress professionals and designers as The Ghent Workgroup (GWG) unveils its newly streamlined, fast website, www.gwg.org.
In addition the GWG, the international cross-section of PDF and print experts known for creating, testing, and releasing specifications and best practices that have been proven to make it easier for users to ensure PDF document quality across workflows around the world; announces newly elected officers to its executive committee.
The www.gwg.org Website
The latest version of the website has been completely revamped to address the expanding population of GWG specification users and adopters. Since its inception over 6 years ago, the GWG has been successful in designing, testing and publishing a number of specifications and best practice resources to benefit the graphic arts community.
David Zwang, GWG Chairman, says, “Now that we’ve successfully developed and published a fuller spectrum of free best practice resources, we recognize the need to ensure that users have easy and quick access to these valuable resources. We also are entering more of an education phase of GWG; where we want to spread the word even further to all those who can benefit. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to deliver that information through our website. As we continue to progress as a group, developing this full range of resources; we want to ensure that our website reflects our progress and becomes the “go to” site for all stakeholders in the workflow process.”
Zwang says that the GWG has also added an education component to its marketing subcommittee, to reflect the need and planned efforts in making the graphic arts community aware of important GWG findings.
The redesigned site’s web structure is more user-friendly and graphically appealing than the previous site format. “One of the most important results of the redesign,” says Zwang, “is that it will allow visitors to find what they need in a matter of seconds.”
