The 2020 Publishing Season in Review

As we look at the publishing year in review, we are pleased to note NMP embraced adaptation in this year’s publishing cycle. New recruiting practices led to new articles. Final products were adapted to suit the virtual learning environment. We accomplished all of this as we also adapted to a new way of life. As a result, we hereby dub “adaptability” as the NMP Keyword of 2020.

A combination of print and online production were the focus of January and February’s conversations. With the March arrival of COVID-19, our conversations shifted to online-only production. The change to online-only opened up flexibility in book lengths, color options, and other considerations.

NMP added a publishing partner in BlueToad. This change made new online editions available for NMP clients.

We had production adventures along the way. Adventures that started with the words, “Can we…” always took us in interesting directions. New articles were written on the fly to address the rapidly changing recruitment practices demanded by COVID-19 and an increasingly virtual world.

As this post goes live, there are a few follow-up projects underway. Still, it is safe to say the season was a success! Visit the Recent Works page to view the online editions of the Guides published this year.

It was a real pleasure working with all of these schools. Have a great and safe school year!
