Montreal (Canada) - Curtis Moore, founder, publisher and designer of Creative Convocation has announced the sale of the magazine to Charles Hively, founder, publisher and designer of 3x3, the Magazine of Contemporary Illustration. Creative Convocation s audience is students and professors in art departments within colleges, universities and art schools in the U.S. and Canada. The magazine s editorial content showcases student work in fine arts, graphic design, illustration and photography as well as features on each of these areas.

Of the sale Moore said, "I decided to make this move so someone like Charles could take over the reins and I can devote more time to my family and the full-time job I have. I love what Charles has done with 3x3 and I expect equally great things to happen to Creative Convocation."

Hively said, "I think Curtis has done a marvelous job of starting Creative Convocation, it's an important and unique publication, and I am honoured that he would approach me to take over the publishing and design of it. I know the personal sacrifices Curtis has made; knowing first-hand what its like to start a magazine from scratch." Hively went on to say that the magazine will stay true to its roots in the academic community. "You can expect some stylistic changes as is expected from one designer to another but the core focus of the magazine will not change," said Hively. There will be new departments added to each issue which Hively feels will add to the importance of the magazine among the student audience. "Our plan is to take what Curtis so ably started and grow it beyond where it is today. As a young publication, the sky's the limit." added Hively.

The offices will move from Salt Lake City, Utah to 244 Fifth Avenue, Suite 269, New York, NY 10001 effective immediately.
