You're Catching All This, Right?

In case you haven't noticed, there's some MAJOR discussion going on in the editorial design world:
• Check out our SPD post with tons of great commentary here.
• Writer/Editor Andrew Losowsky states his own argument: part one and two.
• Also noted on MagCulture with comparisons to an iPad app.
• A Photo Editor notes designers' reactions are similar to that of photographers in regards to cheap stock photography. And even puts forth the idea that this whole thing might be an opportunity for photographers.

There's probably much more out there as well. And as a future designer, editor, photographer, illustrator or creative of any kind, you better be reading.

For All You Ambitious High Schoolers...

The New York Times has teamed up with CUNY's School of Journalism to host a 3-day journalism workshop just for high school students. So if you're in the NYC area and are getting tired of your summer days (haha), consider attending. You'll learn about and get experience in reporting, writing, photography and video (and we can only image a little design will be involved in that!). Takes place next Monday, July 19, thru Wednesday the 21st in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn. Check out all the details here.
Help for Your Identity Crisis

Help for Your Identity Crisis

As a student, you may not yet have proclaimed editorial design as your one true love ... and even those of us who have still have interests beyond the page (or screen these days). These other arenas of graphic design can teach a lot regardless of your final medium, so if you're interested at all in branding and identity (and isn't that what creating a magazine's look is all about?), then check out this new conference from Under Consideration:

An extension of their Brand New blog (check it out if you don't already know it), the Brand New Conference takes place on Nov. 5, 2010, here in NYC, features amazing speakers, and offers you students a 50% discount on the registration!! But you have to act fast, it's limited to only 25 of you. And for those of you unable to make it to the Big Apple, you can attend via webcast for even cheaper! They'll even be selling videos of the event afterward. All the details here.
