Danni's Hard Drive "DHD" (www.danni.com), one of the Internet's first and leading adult Web sites has entered into a creative services agreement with Montcalm, publisher of the 3rd largest men's magazine in the world. The agreement calls for DHD to create a new web presence for Montcalm's flagship publication, Gallery Magazine. Montcalm has contracted with DHD to create, redevelop and maintain gallerymagazine.com (www.gallerymagazine.com). DHD will apply all of its design, creative services and back office support to the Gallery project including its ultra fast proprietary online credit card processing, 24 hour customer service and its new state of the art Internet broadcast facilities.
DHD Founder and President Danni Ashe, stated "Gallery is one of the most well known and respected brand names in the adult world, and Montcalm has an impeccable business reputation. It's an ideal fit for this first venture into using our own proprietary tools, technologies, and creative services for outside companies. Gallery's high quality content and 20 year "Girl Next Door" archive will make for a sensational new website."
Since 1995, DHD has been a recognized leader in Internet entertainment. The company's reputation for success and growth, as well as customer loyalty and satisfaction, is what attracted Gallery publisher Russell Orenstein. "DHD is the class of the Internet. Integrity and longevity aren't necessarily web hallmarks, but DHD has already established a business beyond reproach. They were our only choice." said Orenstein.
Danni's Hard Drive, a pioneer in Internet commerce, gets on average over 7 million hits a day and has over 30,000 members. It has been featured on the covers of the Wall Street Journal and USA Today, and has received extensive television coverage including 48 Hours, CNN, ABC World News Tonight, Politically Incorrect, Entertainment Tonight, Extra, E! Channel and a host of other print and broadcast media.
Best known as being the very first men's magazine to feature amateur content with its trademark "Girl Next Door" contest, Gallery is currently distributed worldwide. Gallery's first issue appeared in 1972 featuring authorized nude photos of Linda Evans. Since then, Gallery has been cited in the Congressional Record and is one of only two longstanding men's publications never to be found guilty of obscenity.
The new Gallery web site is scheduled to be live by Mid August.
