The new feature Proofing in Husky helps marketing agencies and marketing teams work together more efficiently to review and approve graphical marketing material faster and easier.

That's probably how it's going to be right now...

"Will you check that design?"

The files are on the server or are being mailed. The PDF is printed, commented on, scanned and returned, or via complex references the proofreader tries to indicate what needs to change where. The most digital colleague may indicate his comments digitally on a PDF and then save and return a copy of it.

As a designer, it is a hell of a job if you have to process the corrections made by various people. Maybe they contradict each other in their corrections, or maybe everyone has indicated the same mistake ... 

We need to be able to do better, and indeed: with Husky's online proofing, that's a thing of the past.

How does Proofing work?

  • You upload PDFs and images in Husky, in the relevant context (channel, moment, task, note, strategy...).
  • In the browser, the file is loaded and you can zoom in and out and add notes. These can be simple post-it notes, but you can also use rectangles, ovals and even a virtual drawing pen to indicate what needs to be changed.
  • These notes automatically become discussions so together you can come to the best result.
  • In the end you arrive at a file that can be approved.
