Long day where we could enjoy quite a few different talks covering a wide range of subjects.
Kati Krause had a fantastic talk, trying to respond to a question many people pose: can online magazines show same sensibility than their print counterparts?. You can follow her full talk in English here
If Kati took us to future of magazines, Prof Patrick Rösler sent us to the past, particularly to the Weimar Republic, proving how timeless can be the ‘avant garde’ look of that era.
This presentation served as a preamble to the City magazines session, which took us to several cases of city magazines. Sadly I believe the subject could had been explorer in bigger depth and the chosen cases did not make justice to the variety of options (both past and present) that exceed in this field
I had special interest in seeing what the Infographic session would bring, and wasn’t disappointed at all. Interesting work from Jan Schwochow, worth looking at his work here. Special mention to Thilo von Debschitz and the labour of love that was publishing all the hidden works of Fritz Kahn. Such an interesting story, one can only wonder how this visionary body of work could had been in the darkness until now..
Finally, Walter Green gave us a very pleasant surprise after a very long day. His presentation for magazine Lucky Peach was a good metaphor of what this magazine: fresh, exciting and full of humour.
