Introduction to Event

It’s all about design. Either in print or any digital platform, the editor/designer looks for a design that can add value to the content and a personality to the publication. It is not only big news from around the world, that need to be treated special but can also be a regional big event, or a sport page that celebrates the championship as well as pages for the culture section presenting an unique event or festival.

The print design workshop would focus on the visual part of bringing big news to your audience and designing pages for special occasions.

Participants will learn how to create a compelling, engaging reading experience when working with daily news and to create a solid foundation for your publication by understanding the characteristics
of strong typography.

The digital design workshop will help the designers and editors to understand the opportunities available for presenting news and features in tablets, online and mobile and how to make the most of it. The ergonomic demands of design, how it’s form and size create unique design considerations will be analysed in digital design workshop.
