Robin Donovan Joins The Big Picture as Editor-in-Chief
“Her experience as an editor in the signage field and in one of the key end-user markets for digital printing technology gives her a unique, very well-rounded perspective on the industry.”
ST Media Group International, a Cincinnati-based publisher of information products for the signage and graphics, packaging, and design fields, has promoted Robin Donovan to editor-in-chief of The Big Picture, the leading publication for the digital-printing industry.
Donovan, who holds an M.S. from Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, joined ST Media Group in 2011 as associate editor of Signs of the Times. The following year, she joined the staff of VMSD, the leading media brand for the store design field, where she was promoted to managing editor. Donovan replaces former editor-in-chief Gregory Sharpless, who left ST Media Group to pursue new opportunities with a publishing company in unrelated markets.
“Robin is an exceptionally talented journalist and we know she’ll do an outstanding job leading The Big Picture,” says Steve Duccilli, senior VP of content. “Her experience as an editor in the signage field and in one of the key end-user markets for digital printing technology gives her a unique, very well-rounded perspective on the industry. She has also demonstrated great aptitude for building and engaging audiences across all of the different media sources that professionals use today to get information for their businesses.”
Donovan will be responsible for all editorial content in The Big Picture, including its print and digital editions, website (www.bigpicture.net), electronic newsletters, social-media groups, and other information formats. She joins a talented team that includes associate editor Adrienne Palmer and art director Kathleen DeZarn.
“I look forward to leading The Big Picture, a brand committed not only to educating and informing its audience, but also to creating a community of industry leaders whose ideas and influence will shape today’s competitive marketplace,” Donovan says.
