Raphael Ducos As journalist, Raphael Ducos has witnessed the printing industry for decades. He today operates as freelancer. He was one of the first journalists to advocate for digital at a time where digital was the “print enemy”. He was right in many ways. Raphael has a talent to identify emerging industry trends – he predicted the consolidation of the print service providers and the emergence of on-line printers. He is looking at things in a unique way. Maybe this is due to his educational background having a master in Philosophy.
