WAN-IFRA and SND to host 2nd biennial “News Design Conference” in India

WAN-IFRA and SND are happy to announce the 2nd biennial News Design Conference in South Asia.


Good things are often worth repeating. Such is the case for the South Asia News Design Conference, co-presented by SND and WAN-IFRA. The 2012 conference in New Delhi was such a hit that we’re bringing it back, this time at the Hotel Courtyard Marriott Mumbai International Airport in Mumbai on June 3-4.

This news design conference will offer concepts and strategies for participants to use to develop or improve their publication’s unique design style. Designers and editors from India and abroad who have guided major design initiatives will speak on the latest developments in print and digital news design, the front page, picture editing, typography, data and coding, informational graphics and much, much more.

An impressive array of speakers includes Manoj Bhramar, National Design Editor of The Economic Times Group; Haika Hinze, art director of the World’s Best Designed Newspaper, Die Zeit; Guru Vaidya, Senior Solutions Consultant for Digital Media at Adobe Systems India Pvt Ltd.; Vinod Verma, Editor, Digital and Convergence at Amar Ujala.
