A story is a story is a story is a story. Or is it? With listeners becoming readers, and readers becoming users, storytellers have to keep re-inventing themselves. So let us talk about the ever-changing nature of editorial design, the endless wellspring of new ways of storytelling, and what may lie abreast.
The fourth international Editorial Design Conference will see magazine makers offering insights into new global trends and surprising counter-trends, and examining contemporary transformations. Gathering under the question, “Quo Vadis Editorial Design?” (QVED for short), designers, journalists and publishers discuss their latest work, providing a glimpse into their successful and failed projects alike, and showing examples from others who have inspired them. Europe’s largest conference on editorial design is more than conference by and for editors: it is pure inspiration for designers from every field.
