2015 Pub Crawl Wrap-Up

2015 Pub Crawl Wrap-Up

Over 60 students attended our Pub(lications) Crawl on Friday, October 2, 2015, visiting the offices of Entertainment Weekly, Woman's Day, W, Popular Mechanics, Esquire, 8x8, TIME and design firm Segal Savad. You can check out photos from the event on our SPD-U Facebook page here.

It was an incredible day of insights and inspiration. But don't just take our word for it ... hear what the attendees actually had to say...

"It was exactly what I was hoping it would be and a little more. Very well run, and both places were excited to have us, and showed us some really awesome things."

"The tour was amazing! It really reinforced that this is the career path I want to stay on."

"I loved the enthusiasm and positivity shown by the staffs ... you could certainly feel the camaraderie among everyone at both magazines. Everyone whom we met was extremely amiable and open to questions from students."

"Really awesome presenters who seemed to genuinely care about our time with them."

"It was great meeting so many different people who help create the publication, not just the creative directors. It was also really great to have a weekly publication and then a monthly. It was a great experience to see how the two differentiate."

"I really loved it. It got me excited to go home and design things."

Thanks to all of you who attended, and a HUGE thanks to our tour hosts and amazing tour guides: Sergio Capursi, Christine Fink, Ida Garland, Lauren Heffron, Ryan Padgett, Brandon Penny, Adri Ramdeane and Alexa Speyer!!

SPD-U's First Mini-Pub Crawl Completed!

For our first-ever Mini-Pub(lications) Crawl event on February 13, a lucky 10 students got an exclusive presentation and tour of the 9Threads Custom Publishing studio from our wonderful hosts Nancy Campbell and Trevett McCandliss of McCandlissandCampbell (shown in the group photo above, center back).

"We started with a slide presentation and then did a Q&A. The students actually stuck around and chatted with us for a while beyond the original end time ... we are always happy to speak to students!" said Nancy.

Trevett agreed: "It was great! We had fun speaking with the students and showing them our work. It's always a pleasure to do anything with SPD!"

Pub(lications) Crawled 2014!

Pub(lications) Crawled 2014!

This was one of the best New York trips our group has ever experienced. Organized, informational and just AWESOME!

That is just one of many comments we received about our 2014 Pub(lications) Crawl event last Friday, September 19. A huge thanks to all of you who joined us for this day-long event touring magazine/publishing art departments. If you missed it, never fear! We've got a few more smaller events planned for later this fall and spring, and then of course, there's always next year.

I loved that every one was so nice ... also the handouts and free goodies. I thought it was a special treat since I could read some of the material on the way back home. They're also good tools at comparing and looking at my own work and seeing what I need to improve or embellish on.

We also want to extend a SUPER-HUGE thanks to our wonderful tour hosts: Bloomberg Businessweek, Esquire, Martha Stewart Living, More, Sports Illustrated, Travel + Leisure and 29th Street Publishing

Being able to tour such well-known magazine firms was very inspirational and felt like a privilege.

Check out some more images from the day on our Facebook page.

Only 4 Days Left to Register for the Year's ONLY Pub Crawl

The registration deadline for our Pub(lications) Crawl event is 11:30pm Monday, so sign up now! Tour B is full, but Tour A and Tour C still have room, though they're filling up fast. We're only doing one Pub Crawl this year (as opposed to previous years where we did it once in the fall and once in the spring), so don't miss out on this awesome opportunity to get behind-the-scenes access.

For those of you who will be attending, we've got some trivia questions:
 
• Which of the magazines we'll visit (shown above) once published a multi-part graphic novel in every edition?
 
• Which is published under a different title in Australia, because its name was already taken by a lad's mag that features scantily clad women?
 
• Which was started by a former stockbroker?
 
Think you know the answers? Find out for sure next Friday! Sign up here.
