First Asia Pacific news design conference

WAN-IFRA and the Society for News Design (SND) will join together to present a conference Jan. 23, 2012 in New Delhi, India to show the participants the “best practices” in creativity, originality and the efficiency in producing news for all platforms.

A good design gives added value to the editorial content. Today, newspaper designers, infographics artists and editors face the challenge of creative design to adapt to the four main news platforms — print, web, mobile and tablet.

The ITF will contribute to this first Asia Pacific news design conference, with our lecture of the state of newspaper typography in India. The full conference programme is below:
