Brussels (Belgium) - The Italian design magazine, ARTLAB, has joined the Icograda Design Media Network (IDMN). The publication provides multi-disciplinary updates in the world of graphic design and imagery, offering quarterly issues with specific design themes. ARTLAB is published by Integrata - an established trade magazine producer - and is one of several European design publications that are part of the IDMN.

Every issue centers on a specific theme or graphic style that is the hinge-pin for articles in the areas of: design, top applications, contemporary art, photography, web design, illustration, fashion, music and video, environmental graphics, cinema, and other fields. Beyond the central theme, additional articles appear on type design, interior architecture, theatre and staging, and ethics - as well as on professional themes of general interest.

Integrata has produced conventional (hard copy), digital and online trade publications, with a team of experts since 1987. Integrata's core business is the publication of two quarterly trade magazines that target printing professionals and graphic designers: Offset Hi Tech and ARTLAB. These magazines (total circulation 20,000 copies) cover the entire sector, from the original creative input to the printed product. The publisher's aim is simple: create publishing products whose contents make a quality statement, while remaining attractive to an extensive audience of professional readers.
