Russell has been doing this a long time. This year he celebrates 41 years as a professional in, and around, the publishing world. He also celebrates 25 years as a public speaker and trainer. “When I started as a reporter/photographer we had typesetters and darkrooms,” Russell laments. “I don’t miss either.” Russell started in the “desktop publishing” world with PageMaker in 1987 and has used all of the industry tools extensively since. In addition to training, he is hired to work on projects that allow him to push the limits of the software so he gets to practice what he preaches. “I don’t show anything to an audience that I haven’t used on a real project,” Russell said. “It allows me to know the nuances of a feature…the things you don’t know until you really push it.” You can catch Russell’s live stream, which he does with Julia Zieger, regularly on Behance: https://www.behance.net/digiversitytv/livestreams.
