Egmont UK — part of the major European media group of the same name — every year sells around 16 million books and 11.5 million magazines for children and teenagers; it is one of the largest children’s book publishers in the UK. Altogether nearly 200 people, spread between the Books and Magazines businesses in separate London premises, work to produce the ongoing streams of new publications.
These people are all assisted by desktop computers, both PCs and Apple Macintoshes, the latter being favoured by the company’s many designers. As well as day-to-day commercial processing and external and internal communications, Egmont relies heavily on IT help in the creation of its new publications; the company does much of the design work in house. The Magazines designers use the full range of Adobesoftware, and at Books PhotoShop and Illustrator are used alongside Quark Xpress.
