Lars Pryds will be a speaker in St. Louis
Wow! This is gonna be fun: I've been asked to speak at the annual SND seminar and workshop in St. Louis, Missouri, which will take place on September 29 - October 1, 2011! We've picked a subject that will be really interesting. The title will be: "In cold Scandinavia, magazines are hot".
__I really look forward to showcase some of the fabulous mag design we have in the Scandinavian countries.

Here's the intro text for my presentation, as seen in the screendump above:
__"Newspapers are struggling to survive, cutting costs and staff – and it shows on the pages. Magazines seems to have more room for experiments, and visuals are part of the fight to get and keep readers. Graphic artist and designer Lars Pryds will show and discuss examples of innovative magazine work being done in the Scandinavian countries. Meet among others: the Swedish longwriters, the Finnish porn star, the Norwegian twins, the Danish photo champions – and help answer the question: Will magazines beat the shit out of newspapers? As a bonus – get a short introduction to SNDS Magazine, the ambitious ‘inhouse’ print publication of the Scandinavian branch of SND."
