Blurb + Leading Magazine Designer Team Up to Offer Stylish Alternative to Cliched Photo Book Themes
SAN FRANCISCO, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Blurb, the global creative publishing platform, today introduces the Designer Collection, a new series of free-to-use book templates that instantly transform simple photo books into professionally designed and beautiful productions. Unlike being locked into cookie-cutter wedding, travel, or family book themes, users can choose from a series of six stylish templates, each suitable for multiple occasions.
"Ranging from fun, to beautiful, to elegant, the Designer Collection brings out the inner designer in each of us," said Eileen Gittins, CEO and Founder of Blurb. "After you choose one of the new free templates, Blurb's online app will automatically create a book for you that's both seriously stylish and highly personalized."
Additional customization options allow creators to add captions, include personal messages, and switch between different layouts seamlessly. The Designer Collection was created specifically for Blurb by designer Laura Brunow Miner, former Design Director at the acclaimed JPG Magazine and founder of Pictory, an online photo magazine.
The Designer Collection enhances Blurb's popular Instant Photo Book offerings that enable everyday photographers and social media users to create and publish books in less than an hour by pulling directly from their Facebook Timelines, their friend's Facebook collections, or their Instagram photo streams. The Designer Collection allows photo book creators to pull photographs from anywhere, whether in Facebook, Instagram, or their personal digital collection.
