Paper vs. Pixels: Designing for Print + Screen in the Digital Age
Apr

Paper vs. Pixels: Designing for Print + Screen in the Digital Age

  • Passerbuys Lounge at Canal Street Market

Join Passerbuys and Chandelier Creative for Paper vs. Pixels: Designing for Print + Screen in the Digital Age at the Passerbuys Lounge in Canal Street Market on Wednesday, April 25, from 7-9pm.

The panel discussion will explore consumer reading habits and publishing's use of technology and design in the Internet era with speakers Renda Morton, Executive Director of Product Design at The New York TimesOmar Sosa, Founder & Creative Director of Apartamento MagazineThessaly La Force, Editor-in-Chief at Garage Magazine and will be moderated by Jorge Balarezo.

In a climate where print sales are going down and our lives increasingly revolve around stories we read online, publishers are faced with the challenge of grabbing our attention and standing out amongst a constantly expanding landscape of new (and often free) media. As publications seek solutions to this problem from a design perspective, they weigh the options for how to best reach their target audience. Are apps the way forward? Do readers desire more visual content? How can we translate content intended for print into something optimized for consuming on mobile devices?

“Paper vs. Pixels” is part of "Truth-tellers & Troublemakers" salon in collaboration with Passerbuys.

About The Brands

Vanity Projects

Founded by independent curator, Rita de Alencar Pinto in 2009, Vanity Projects first began as a pop-up, organizing itself in the homes and studios of visual artists, friends, and art aficionados. Vanity Projects quickly received offers to present at art fairs, fashion events, museums, and cultural institutions. Offering nail artists the chance to exhibit their talents in a new environment, the program coincided with the salon’s brick and mortar debut in Manhattan’s Lower East Side in July 2013. Since then Vanity Projects has hosted over twenty-five international nail artists from London to Miami, and presented video programs featuring top contemporary video artists and international curators. 

Floss Gloss

Founded by Aretha Sack and Janine Lee in San Francisco in 2011. After meeting in college at California College of the Arts, an instantaneous admiration for each other sparked as they bonded over fashion, music, color and an obsession for everything nails.  The ladies formed the nail crew ‘Floss Gloss’ after many late nights of painting and polish-mixing, rap music bumping and girl-time talking.  Deemed Floss Gloss for nails that ‘Flossed and Glossed like a Boss’.

I Graduated, What Now?

Over the past year, the Passerbuys community has grown more than we ever could have imagined, and we are constantly inspired by the many diverse, talented, and interesting women we find ourselves surrounded by. As the growth of Passerbuys continues, we want to find new ways to bring that incredible community together.

And on that note, we are so excited to announce the very first Passerbuys event, “I Graduated, What Now?” in partnership with Urban Outfitters. We hope you’ll join us January 11th at Space Ninety 8 for this panel discussion featuring eight inspiring female entrepreneurs. Moderated by our friend Erin Allweiss, they’ll be sharing their experiences, the advice they wish they had received when they were starting out, and so much more. While it will be a particularly helpful discussion for young creatives in need of a little guidance, all are welcome. And, if you need further incentive, Abigail’s Bakeshop and Raus Coffee will be there with the snacks.

Space is limited, so make sure to reserve your spot. We’ll see you there!
