Editorial Design

Experimental publication workshop

We live in a world that is increasingly surrounded by media –the news, the content we share with our loved ones, advertising… they all take place in a mostly digital environment, that's an undeniable fact. In this context, it's not uncommon to hear that printed publications have fallen out of use, and that their lack of immediacy and use of material resources have made them obsolete.

Contrary to this statement, physical publications continue to be of absolute relevance. The abundance of digital media has forced us to ask ourselves which contents belong in print, and which should be published online –as a result, part of the process of editing and publishing is to optimize the available resources in order to find the appropriate space for each type of content. Nowadays, the printed publication is employed in cases where the content can benefit from its inherent qualities: permanence, independence from energy sources, and materiality –with all its peculiarities. The net is the perfect space to share data and provide up-to-the-minute information. The printed publication? It's the place where stories are told at their best.

During the workshop, participants will engage in an editorial project. They'll create a printed publication by using the resources they have at hand, optimizing and making the most out of them. The project will push them to test their storytelling and design skills, delving into the creation of all-encompassing concepts that can be applied to typography, layout and art direction –with a strong emphasis on printed production and economy of means.
