Publisher Five Simple Steps is back

A month on from its surprise closure, Five Simple Steps, a publisher of focused web books, has found a new home. Original owners Mark and Emma Boulton shut up shop after Mark Boulton Design joined Monotype. The imprint is now to be run by Amie Duggan and Craig Lockwood, the people behind Handheld Conf, Besquare and FoundersHub.

Speaking to Creative Bloq, Duggan said she and Lockwood knew immediately on hearing about the closure of Five Simple Steps that they wanted to take it on board: "There was no decision to make - it was the next logical step for us. The core of our business is to provide services to the web industry, and Five Simple Steps closes that circle through us now offering events, videos and books."
