As of 4 May 2011, Astute Graphics Limited has acquired all IP of Nineblock Software. This includes the Adobe Illustrator™ plugin products “BetterHandles”, “SnapMeasure” and “EZConstrain”.
Astute Graphics is a leading Adobe Illustrator™ plugin developer having produced and continuously developed the popular Phantasm CS plugin range of color control and pre-press tools since 2006. Its commitment to the design and publishing market has been well proven, including numerous industry awards.
Astute Graphics will publicly set out its plans for Nineblock’s impressive and established technology shortly. Astute Graphics’ key reason for the acquisition was the demonstrable depth of quality evident in Nineblock Software’s solutions and the level of potential present.
As of 4 May 2011, Nineblock Software has ceased to trade. Support for Nineblock Software by Astute Graphics will be limited to the supply of lost registration codes, where possible. However, Astute Graphics will ensure that solutions will be offered to allow Nineblock Software’s customers to continue enjoying their unique workflow enhancements for Adobe Illustrator™.
On behalf of Nineblock Software, Astute Graphics wishes to thank all the loyal customers of Nineblock Software for the support shown. Astute Graphics intends to demonstrate that this change will prove to be very positive for existing Nineblock Software and Astute Graphics customers, as well as users of Adobe Illustrator™.
