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.
