This September, in beautiful Mexico City, a top-notch group of leaders of visual design will gather for La Cumbre Mundial de Diseño en Prensa, the World Summit on Media Design. This is the second time the Cumbra has been held in Mexico and SND is honored to be a part of it.
The Cumbre, a collaboration between Excelsior, Grupo Imagen, El Universal, Sintesis, El Economista, Arroyo, Grupo Expansion, Siempre!, Secretaria de Turismo Ciudad de Mexico, Istmo, Net-Channel.tv and Universidad Panamericana will be held in Mexico for the second year.
The event will be held Sept. 24, 25 and 26 at the Universidad Panamericana. SND members can register here.
According Alexandro Medrano, at Excelsior, a designer or artist’s average day isn’t very different than it would be while working at other newspapers when it comes to executing pages. They gather content and chase down visual opportunities. The difference lies in the philosophy.
That philosophy, according to Medrano — “Those of us who do things differently are those who make a trend.” — dictates everything they do, whether part of the newspaper, TV or Internet. Read more about Excelsior after the jump.
