New Look of the GoMediaZine

If you are a longtime reader of the GoMediaZine, you have probably noticed the new redesign that went live a little less than 2 weeks ago. An extra BIG thank you to Wilson Revehl and Bryan Garvin for all their hard work and countless hours of troubleshooting, testing, and redesigning. The Zine wouldn’t be what it is without their efforts.
