John Pettigrew, CEO of We Are Futureproofs, has been an editor since the mid-1990s, working on journals, school textbooks, CD-ROMs, websites, apps, ebooks and a range of other products. He’s always been fascinated by the tools we use to do our jobs, and by finding the best tools and the best ways to use them in real-world situations. That’s why he created Futureproofs – to give publishing teams tools that worked for the digital, connected world.

John presented a Friday session at the 2016 Typefi User Conference on quality assurance, the importance of editorial, and the role of good tools and processes in being sure that our content is correct, worthwhile and ready for publication.
