(Design Publication Goes All App)
CMYK 1.0: 1996–1999
In the mid-’90s, the advertising and design industries experienced a renaissance in New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Boston, Portland, and Seattle.
Here in San Francisco, the dot-com boom sparked a creative gold rush with agency mines like Saatchi and Saatchi; J. Walter Thompson; Leagas Delaney; Lowe & Partners/SMS; Mad Dogs and Englishmen; and Hal Riney offspring Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners. In graphic design, you had Landor and Cahan & Associates, and the Three Michaels (Mabry, Osborn, and Vanderbyl). Not to mention Nash Bridges.
San Francisco was equally an epicenter for magazine start-ups with mastheads like Cups, Spec, Mas Moda, and Critique. Emigre was igniting in the East Bay. CMYK’s mission was the showcasing of outstanding creativity from the student-graduate level. Fortunately for CMYK, the art school scene was growing nationwide with plenty of established and emerging art-design schools and programs, all still thriving in their niche. Academy of Art University, Art Center College of Design, and Portfolio Center, among many others, were staples in communication-arts education, while Miami Ad School was but a year old and The Creative Circus, VCU Brandcenter, Chicago Portfolio School, and Brainco were opening their doors.
CMYK magazine became the voice of the new creative class: an independent, four-color, high-gloss design magazine publishing the future of advertising and design directly from the portfolios of art students in high demand.
To best give full prominence to its work showcase, CMYK’s design template was all about clean white space with a straightforward column editorial format. Yet nothing broke the rules like CMYK’s spray-painted logo and award-winning cover concepts that paid homage to attributes of working in the design industry: magic 8-ball (faith), bullet hole (targeting), gas pump (creative fuel), fishhook (allure), acupuncture needles (stress), and red pen markings (rejection).
CMYK 2.0: 1999–2009
Our 15th issue represented the next rung on the evolutionary ladder. Ten years ago, nearly to the day, CMYK experienced its first complete redesign. The goal was to update the CMYK brand aesthetic and strengthen the foundation and infrastructure.
A few more talented people were hired to issue a more modern take on the publication. A new label-style logo and high-concept layout were adopted, featuring a piece of student work on the cover for each issue. The redesign proved successful, spanning an entire decade with subtle issue-by-issue improvements along the way. This period would also see two new versions of the CMYK Web site.
The steady growth helped establish CMYK as synonymous with inspiration. Editorial content was expanded by adding a calendar and book-review section and reporting on industry artists doing breakthrough work at all visual communication levels. CMYK would also add more pages to our aspiring creative showcase. The publication established a standard of integrity and excellence, and CMYK would see its business model become one of the largest and most sought-after creative contests on the planet.
CMYK 3.0: 2009–2014
Now, with an ailing economy and a new set of challenges at the forefront of our minds, CMYK saw an opportunity to reinvest in its product and emerge ready to face its next phase. It was time once again to tear it down and build it back up. You don’t fight progress.
With a solid foundation, CMYK was looking to emphasize what had set it apart from other design magazines and at the same time improve on what it is that today’s readers would appreciate. Growth was the goal of the new redesign and expansion of the magazine’s audience and authority, both visually and content-wise.
The goal was to give the magazine a more fluid, cohesive feel as a singular product and tie it together—cover, front, middle, back. A new tagline was adopted to define better the functionality of the magazine’s bent: “Create, Showcase, Inspire.” The CMYK logo was altered by closing the spacing between the letters. Covers summarized more of the magazine’s content with a more calculated focus on getting the reader to open the book.
Inside, the publication wanted to use its namesake colors throughout all aspects of the magazine. The editorial expanded with more international coverage and a more personal, from-the-source inspiration, not like anything readers had ever seen from CMYK.
Welcome to the revolution.
A Q&A with Julia Stewart, Founder & CEO of Alurx
If we learned anything from 2020, to achieve balance and well-being is right where we live. More than ever, home is our everything: the office, the restaurant, the gym, the movie theatre, and even our sanctuary. For Julia Stewart, Founder & CEO of Alurx, prioritizing is an integral part of her everyday life. Affirmations such as “eat healthy,” “listen to my body,” and “sleep well” have become her forever mantras, essential topics of daily conversation, and the basis for her life-long dedication to wellness. We asked Julia to share her 2021 wellness priorities and rituals with our community.
Why is prioritizing your wellness goals year-round more effective than a new year’s resolution?
“Wellness is an ongoing journey. 2021 represents a prime opportunity to reflect on the serious challenges and hardships we have all faced and to recommit our focus on wellness throughout this new year,” says Julia. “I launched Alurx to support everyone on their quest for health and well-being through all-natural, vetted solutions.” For Julia, her journey begins with simple, daily rituals centered around good nutrition, exercise, sleep, self-reflection, and community service.
Today, Julia leads her company from her home office and includes regular breaks and a daily exercise routine. Julia’s practice is based on the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, 2nd edition, published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. This suggests at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic exercise. Julia’s exercise routine begins with a good stretch. It continues with high-intensity interval training on her elliptical machine – three times a week, weights and core strengthening - six times a week, and yoga once a week. After her workouts, she prepares a cup of Alurx Lemon Ginger & Mate Tea Blend with CBD to help her stay energized and motivated during her busiest days.
How do you make wellness a priority for your entire family?
“Because home cooking has become the new dining out, eating healthy couldn’t be easier. The fact that we have more control over our diets through the ingredients we buy and the recipes we use creates more family time and an excellent opportunity for children to acquire healthy eating habits. By choosing less processed, more organic foods and incorporating more staples like fruits and vegetables into our daily meals, we can elevate our moods and improve how we feel in our bodies. Drinking plenty of water as soon as you start your day is essential. Every morning I dissolve a Super 11 Effervescent Tablet for Immunity Support in a glass of water for a delicious vitamin-packed drink. The Harvard Medical School Special Health Report suggests drinking water keeps our bodies hydrated and aids in digestion, protecting our organs, normalizing blood pressure, and cushioning our joints.”
Wellness can also be a group participation sport. There are plenty of activities for the entire family to promote good health and togetherness, such as dog walks, hula hoop contests, boogying down to your favorite radio station, board games, indoor treasure hunts, group stretches, and much more. And when Julia needs to relax her aching muscles from such rigorous activity, she turns to the Alurx Cooling Gel with peppermint oil, menthol, and hemp-derived CBD for relief.
What is your skincare ritual, and how do you keep your skin glowing year-round?
“Skin health is paramount to our overall well-being. Feeling your best is also about letting your energy shine through and looking your most radiant.” Julia shares that her skincare routine has been an enduring focus throughout her professional career, from ambitious food server to successful CEO and Chair on many Boards. Her morning and evening skincare regimens combine her favorite products, including Christine Valmy Deep Cleanser, Dermatologica Solar Defense SPF Boosters, Alurx Multivitamin Rejuvenating Serum, Hydrating Wrinkle Smoothing Cream, and Effervescent Collagen Support Tablets. Collagen is vital for skin, bone, and connective tissue health. Therefore, Julia saw that the Alurx skin health collection includes ingestible ingredients that support our body’s natural collagen production.
Lastly, how do you fuel your resilience and perseverance while building a business during a global crisis?
“My passion for making a difference never wanes. The COVID-19 pandemic has only intensified my resolve and strengthened my commitment to make Alurx a world leader in wellness, “Julia affirms. Alurx’ mission is to bring wellness to everyone through curated, natural, and vetted wellness solutions. As she continues to focus her vision on promoting wellness for all through Alurx, Julia looks to bring together a team of experts in the health and wellness industries to offer advice, products, and services.

Whether you smoke, vape, eat, rub, patch, dab, drink, or drop, nothing is more treasured than bud raised to achieve its maximum yield in potency, pungency, consistency, and longevity. At the end of the day, how you care for your crop determines how kind your Kryptonite.
Reckless or hurried marijuana curing can reduce even the smoothest, most aromatic weed on the planet to skunk in just a few devastating hours. Applying an exact dry and cure can eliminate notorious enzymes, bacteria, and other harmful sugars that can destroy your product’s purity.
Know that there is no magic cure du jour. Be the volume of your grow 50 pounds or 5,000, the caliber of your cure directly correlates to location, season, size, budget, investment, and standards of excellence. The one correct way to master the art of cannabinoid curing is through the mindful practice of patience and TLC.
Follow the instructions below for producing euphoric results when preserving the purity of your pot – no matter where you grow or how massive your stash is.
The chemical makeup in the stigmata has changed, and the trichomes have turned amber. From here on in, it’s all about protecting the terpenes. To begin, you’ll need a space in which to draw the humidity from inside of your clone onto its furry outside. All the while preserving the terpenes’ integrity, so your bud is as kind as nature intended.
Once you’ve prepped the confines for your cure, you’re ready to release the THC. The “dry trim” method is one of the truest and most proven ways to treat your terpenes. Start prepping your plants by cutting off the branches and hanging them up to dry.
Exposure to air can oxidize and diminish the intensity of your buds. You don’t want that. Place the dried cannabis into sealed Kilner containers at desired drying temperature for 2 to 24 hours depending on quantity. The goal is to get your bud to become uniform in moisture consistency or dryness and prevent moisture and terpene dissipation.
Like a skilled chef or a veteran cigar roller, you must know your product better than anyone. If you don’t partake, you can’t evaluate.
Pro Tip: Only from experiencing the nuances of your cannabis and all its qualities can somebody fully appreciate the medicinal miracles that the heavy responsibility of drying and curing produces.
It starts with a sinking sensation followed by a ringing of the ears. If you’re not careful, it can quickly spread to flushing of the face, racing the heart, and hacking your IT system.
Hooked by the desperate urgency of the ALL-CAPS subject line, you open the email and find that your boss is using extreme language by demanding that you pay an “updated” printing invoice – right now! You have a momentary lapse of reason, and against your better judgment, submit your credentials and wire the funds immediately to avoid penalties and service delays. The company is out $2,550, and you can’t shake the bewildered look on your face.
You’ve been phished. According to Tripwire.com, 58% of today’s online businesses admit to being attacked by data poachers out to “harpoon” unsuspecting employees for their login credentials. By trolling through email, telephone, or text messages, attackers posing legitimate institutions can successfully net personal identifiable information, banking and credit cards, and passwords. Phishing is easy, costly, and making crafty cybercriminals very wealthy.
The stories are true, and the reality is that social engineering spoofs amount to a billion-dollar industry. In 2019, a company phishing trip can cost upwards of $5 million, or $301 per employee (Ponemon Institute, 2018). A new client recently contacted ClearFuze with their sensitive accounting data hacked and used against the business to the tune of $250,000. All vendors and customers received bogus invoice updates with demands to pay or else. The monies sent went on to Nigeria and disappeared forever, along with the fraudster.
For innocent individuals involved in malicious cybercrimes, it’s all about unauthorized purchases, stealing cash, and identity theft. For a company or organization that succumbs to an advanced persistent threat (APT), the consequences typically include severe financial losses as well as a decline in market share, reputation, brand equity, and customer trust. Depending on the job’s scope, a phishing attempt might escalate into a security incident from which a business will have a difficult time recovering.
Step One: Don’t get caught in a phishing net. Please ask how ClearFuze can help safeguard your business from all cyber-scamming schools, including phishing, vishing, smishing, spear phishing, and whaling. In the meantime, I’d bet there’s a good chance your inbox or spam folder contains a handful of suspicious emails. Just in case, please find below “10 Red Flags of Email Phishing,” a no-click approach to reading deceptive emails.

The ClearOne Plan gives customers 24-7 peace of mind with Two Factor Authorization (2FA), Password Management, as well as Employee Awareness Training that educates team members on how to identify and snag phishing attempts throughout all departments in your company.

So, are you ready to meet your people?
(Long Form How-Tos)
Consumer demand for authenticity has transformed content marketing from the art of selling to the art of compelling. People trust recommendations from a third party more than promotion from a brand itself and are influenced to purchase from niche industry specialists that consistently deliver trustworthy information through their social media outlets.
A product endorsement from an authoritative figure can add instant brand credibility— and secure essential leads for your business. You are getting influencers on your side before your competitors are crucial to business success. The key to maximizing your influencer strategy is valuable content that enhances your online presence and user experience.
1. Raise Brand Prominence
Ready to leap clubs to arenas? With a solid strategy and plenty of hard work, influencer marketing can significantly expand your online reach by forming vital alliances with key players in your industry who impact and command thousands of fans, friends, and followers.
2. Meet Your Audience
The audience is everything. When prime influencers promote your brand to their audience, your content is preached to the choir – consumers pre-qualified to be interested in your product or service. You don’t have to spend additional funds on testing and finding your target – the influencer has already fostered these potential customers on social media.
3. Foster Essential Partnerships
Connecting and engaging with an influencer can be the start of a healthy relationship that can bring dividends for years to come. When you present your brand as a viable, trustworthy business, the value derived from collaborations with experts is immeasurable.
EXPERT ROUNDUPS PAGE
Strengthen your networking relationships with leaders in your field, raise your authority by association, and generate immense value for your customers— by asking the right questions.
An expert roundup is collecting quotes, thoughts, or interviews by leading experts with proven authority, influence, and thousands of followers on their social media networks. Real traffic is generated to your website and social platforms when featured authorities start sharing and promoting roundup posts to their audiences.
A successfully organized expert roundup post on your website can deliver immense value to the participating experts and forge lasting relationships with influencers and audiences.
1. Good News Travels Fast. The experts that participate in your roundup can send traffic directly to your post by sharing it with their social media reach. Just imagine the viral traffic you could bring to your site from one influencer worth 250,000 followers.
2. Maximize Brand Relevance. When you are the messenger of rallying influential people in your industry, people take notice. And they start sharing. The more standout contributors in your story, the more attention your post receives with everyone taking part in the conversation.
3. Extend The Conversation. You can get plenty of utility out of a successful roundup post by asking your expert participants to promote your product, submit a guest post, link to your articles, become your affiliates, and collaborate on custom marketing campaigns.
GUEST BLOG PAGE
Words are essential if you want your customers to take action. As a business with something useful to say, blogging can help foster relationships, develop stronger domain authority, and bring you more qualified site traffic.
Bloggers are the linchpin on the wheel of influencers. Rock My Brand can help secure you an industry notable for authoring exclusive, newsworthy, engaging content that can be liked, shared, and bookmarked as essential to positioning your brand’s experience and authority.
1. Establish Industry Credibility. By securing your brand as an authority and a noted reference for other bloggers, the more likely, you will be taken seriously by major players in your niche.
2. Stimulate Shares and Follows. When you initiate the discussion, you become part of the conversation, instantly raising your expertise as a relevant, knowledgeable brand.
3. Exposure To Targeted Traffic. The more websites you have actively linking to your page, the more significant their power to heightening your site’s ranking for quality organic searches.
LINK BUILDING PAGE
When visitors want to learn more about your brand, they will follow the link to your site. Google then determines which pages to rank for that query based on the quantity and quality of inbound links to the page. Sites with more sound backlinks tend to earn higher rankings.
Are quality sites linking to your website? If not, Google might not be showing you high in the search results. Sites that show up higher in the search results tend to have links that are pointing to them. And in competitive industries, higher quality links are needed to stand out amongst the millions of pages for a given search term. We’ve been building relationships for 20 years and will get links to enable your site to show up when your target audience is looking for your products or services.
By helping to develop long-term relationships with key influencers in your industry, Rock My Brand can work with your business to build a robust, formidable link profile that can win plenty of love from both Google and your loyal following fans.
1. Increase Domain Authority.
The number of relevant links pointing back to your domain—along with the viability and relevance of the sources to those backlinks—is a significant and essential factor in determining your brand’s overall site authority.
2. Get on the first page of Google.
75% of all online customers rarely go beyond the first page on a typical Google search. With Rock My Brand’s link-building formula, the goal is to boost your website towards the top of the search results and keep your site there.
3. No More High Bidding. [Alt: No more bidding on expensive terms.
The referral traffic alone from these backlinks can often exceed what most businesses receive from being on the first page of Google for your targeted keywords. And once you’re getting visitors from the backlinks and organic results in Google, you will not be paying for this.
SEO remains the foundation of any online marketing effort, yet many businesses continue to miss the mark on seeing an uptick in their ROI. Not on our watch.
The idea is to promote your content and extend your brand reach to stimulate consumer engagement, raise your link profile, solidify your online authority, and earn respect from search engines. It’s a tall order, but we live for this. After all, we are professionals.
Backed by a secure strategic foundation and content development plan, Rock My Brand will promote your digital assets by leveraging our comprehensive roster of relevant influencers, bloggers, webmasters, and media outlets worldwide.

Social Profile Optimization
PPC & Remarketing Management
Digital Media Relations
Increased conversions, leads, and sales
Real measurable results and ROI
Podcasts live off newsworthy content, and podcasters continually seek influential subject matter just as much as the subjects themselves like to matter. Rock My Brand will set up critical sessions with significant players in your industry and produce quality interview segments, not sales pitches.
One of the more common marketing directives we offer at Rock My Brand is to have an industry podcaster with a large, loyal following use your product or service and share it with their audience. People tune in to podcasts to be entertained and/or enlightened—not just to be sold on something. Once you find your angle, the story will sell itself.
Build trust with expanded reach
Raise your brand’s ROI potential
Forge enduring industry relationships
Position yourself as a respected thought leader
If your homepage is the heart of your site, the landing page is the lifeline that supplies qualified traffic, encourages consumer engagement, and secures qualified leads. With a primary focus on the call to action, landing pages are all about building relationships via user participation.
The primary way to build leads from your landing pages is by enticing your readers with relevant discounts, specials, announcements, and free products—such as an e-book or white paper with trade secrets—that leave potential customers no other choice but to enter their contact information.
