The Creative Business Newsletter

CB is the only publication 100% devoted to the business side of creative services--graphic design, interactive, advertising, editorial, and marketing. Founded in 1989, it has done more to establish business standards for creative services businesses than any other organization.

The information in Creative Business comes from the actual experiences of thousands of creative firm principals and freelances. To ensure objectivity, everything we publish is extensively researched and staff written, and advertising is not accepted.

All subscribers also receive unlimited access to personal business advice. Subscribers are encouraged to e-mail or call us anytime they need a business reality check, face a new situation, or desire a second opinion.


What you will receive

Nine issues a year: Six bi-monthly issues of 16 pages covering several business topics, and three special issues of 8 pages devoted to a single business topic. Each issue, in PDF format and delivered directly to your e-mail mailbox, also contains download links to supplementary CB articles and forms, and to complementary Web sites.
   
Personal business advice: This added benefit, unique among publications of any type, can save subscribers hundreds of dollars each year in wasted time and avoidable mistakes.
   
Access to CB's archive of business articles: Materials in our archive, which address more than a hundred specific business situations, are available to subscribers on request at no charge.
   
Discounts on CB's books and Archive Folder: Our three business books are the industry's bestsellers, and our Archive Folder, containing everything we've published for the last five years, is a creative person's virtual business library.
