Let’s Chat About Digital Touch’s World, Via Our Exciting New Digital Talk Blog

If you’re a fan of light-hearted, often irreverent – yet always insightful – blog reads that openly embrace the wonderfully eclectic world of creativity, then don’t forget to check out our newly launched weekly blog section. Entitled ‘Digital Talk Blog’, this recently rolled-out feature will include opinion pieces, news-worthy stories, reviews and the sharing of all sorts of bitesize stuff of interest to anyone of a visual persuasion.

All of which will be in some way closely associated with (or keenly related to) the photo retouching industry. Well, that’s the general idea.

Brand New Digital Talk Blog Welcomes Experienced Blog Editor

On which note, the team here at Digital Touch are excited to announce that we’ve also acquired the services of our new resident DT Blog Editor, Chris Barker. Who, over the coming weeks and months will be responsible for originating an on-going series of readily accessible pieces/irreverent reads specifically for the brand new Digital Talk blog.

A man of many (well crafted) words, Chris’ unique take on the new Digital Talk blog will touch on a range of relatable human interest topics from hereon in, inspired by a collection of thought-provoking, amusing, information-led and very possibly, educational blog entries.

So why not start familiarising yourself with Chris and his Digital Talk Blog today….

Psssssst. He’s also on Twitter too.

Yup. If you simply can’t get enough of Chris’ weekly creative musings on the dedicated DT blog, then you might want to give DigiTalk a follow over on Twitter. Which is, essentially, more of the same, only with fewer words. And sometimes a slightly edited version of Chris goes a long way.
