  • Wayne Robinson joins Print21 as editor

    Yaffa Media, publisher of the leading industry magazine, welcomes industry media veteran as he moves over to take the helm of the premier graphics arts publication and news service.

    The well-respected Robinson will take up his pivotal industry role in August when he’ll complete a current long-term assignment. He’ll bring to bear his wealth of industry knowledge and contacts in a determination to enhance and improve the reputation and status of Print21.

    He indicated he was keenly looking forward to making the move to what he termed “a larger professional publishing group and working with the great team that’s already there.”

    Tracy Yaffa, MD Yaffa Media, said Robinson was the style of well-qualified industry writer who fits the profile of the company. “We pride ourselves on delivering excellent and engaging content created by informed professionals across all our platforms. Wayne will fit right in here and I’m looking forward to when he joins our team.

    “Patrick Howard, the founding editor and former publisher of Print21, will remain with the title as publishing editor, working with Wayne to create a powerful publishing line-up.”

    As editor of Print21, Robinson continues his decades long engagement with the Australian and New Zealand printing and graphic arts industry. In his new role he’ll enjoy more support in bringing his trademark insight on the supply and production aspects of printing as well as industry politics and movement.

    Lindy Hughson, publisher at Yaffa Media, also lent her support to Robinson joining her line-up of printing and packaging magazine titles,that includes PKN Packaging News. “I’ve known Wayne for many years and I’ve always been impressed by his professionalism. When we acquired Print21 from Patrick Howard in May, Wayne was the obvious choice to steer the title towards its future and also contribute his expertise to the slew of exciting projects lined up across out titles for 2019. With the power team we’ll now have in place, Print21 will reinforce its position as the magazine of record for the printing and graphic arts industry,” she said.
