Advanced Infographics for Print and Online on 14-15 December 2017 in Hyderabad

WAN-IFRA is organizing a workshop on Advanced Infographics for Print and Online on 14-15 December 2017 at Courtyard by Marriott, Hyderabad for which registrations are already started.

Over the last decade, infographics have become an increasing trend and infographic search volumes have increased by 800%. Infographics are liked and shared on social media three times more than any other type of content.

The workshop will be covering both print and online infographics under one roof and will showcase latest trends and new in news infographics. There will be brainstorming, sketching, refining ideas to make a plan. The workshop will also cover interactive and motion graphics and graphics on web, smart phones and tablets. There will also be speedy hands-on sketching exercises in both hand and software.

The workshop will be conducted by Juan Velasco who co-founded 5W Infographics in January 2002. He was the art director of National Geographic magazine between 2008 and 2014. Previously, he was the graphics art director of The New York Times from 1999 to 2002. Velasco has won over fifty Society for News Design awards, ten Malofiej awards, and two Society of Publication Design awards for his infographics work.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
