Quark has announced a limited-availability bundle that combines the company's flagship page layout application QuarkXPress with Macromedia’s FreeHand MX illustration and layout application. The bundle costs £995 plus VAT, saving around £300 compared to the individual prices of the separate applications.
QuarkXPress 6, Quark's first Mac OS X-native version, provides users with the page layout environment that so many desktop publishing professionals are familiar with. FreeHand MX adds the ability to design illustrations, organize content, lay out storyboards, and develop click-through presentations. Both are available for Mac OS X and Windows.
The bundle is being offered exclusively through participating resellers. Lists will be posted on Quark and Macromedia's Web sites. The offer expires on March 31.
