HARRISVILLE, RI -- April 8, 1999 -- The release today of the latest
TrendWatch demographic analysis of U.S. creative professionals
indicates that Apple Computer is still the favorite of creative
professionals, yet at an increasing rate. According to TrendWatch,
the creative markets are defined as graphic designers, corporate
design departments, ad agencies, book and magazine publishers,
catalog publishers, commercial photographers, and graphic
illustrators. The report was released today is available only from
TrendWatch.

According to TrendWatch Partner Jim Whittington, "The TrendWatch
Creative Demographic Atlas and Market Segmentation Guide is a
comprehensive market and product development resource used to
identify market and revenue opportunities in the U.S. creative
markets. The report segments the markets by state, major metropolitan
area and 3-digit zip code. This report is the only market information
resource of its kind for companies marketing to creative
professionals."

The following is an excerpt from the TrendWatch research study
entitled "TrendWatch Creative Demographic Atlas and Market
Segmentation Guide." The complete report can be obtained by
contacting TrendWatch offices in Rhode Island (401-568-9899) and San
Francisco (415-380-8561).

Mac vs. PC

Apple continues to dominate the creative markets. Since 1997, planned
purchases of Macintosh and PowerMac workstations has risen 4.96%, yet
during that same period demand for Windows workstations has fallen
19.9%. In 1999, more than 17,000 creative firms plan purchases of
Macintosh and PowerMac workstations.

Nearly 3,400 creative firms plan Windows 95/98 workstation purchases
and 1,600 firms plan Windows NT workstations purchases in '99.
Leading the way is book and magazine publishers which are planning a
300% increase in Windows 95/98 workstation purchases compared to 1998
purchase plans. Accordingly, there is a corresponding 11% decrease in
Mac workstation purchases among these publishers.

According to Dr. Joe Webb, TrendWatch Partner, "Clearly the
perception that Apple is a financially stable company is reflected in
the increasing demand for their workstations."

will be buying desktop color printers and proofers--32% of these
purchases will be in the $2,500 to $5000 price range;

Addressing the need for demographic data Dr. Webb added, "It is
generally accepted that the smaller and more distinct groups of
buyers become, the greater the opportunity to meet their needs with a
targeted product or service. Many market segments certainly exist in
the graphic arts industry, and as markets continue to develop and
change, new segments or groups of buyers are continually forming. As
technology changes, and various technologies are adopted and
abandoned, new opportunities for segmentation are created. This atlas
organizes the creative markets into manageable information,
supporting today's marketer."
