WAN IFRA news design workshop – 19 & 20 August, Bengaluru

Registrations closing soon


WAN IFRA is organizing a design workshop for designers and news editors on 19 and 20 August 2019 in Bengaluru. Whether in print or any digital platform, editors and designers look for designs that can add value to their content and a personality to the publication.

At the event, visitors will learn how to remake print and digital design trends,
how print can standout in a digital world, variable fonts – covering new font technology, how fake charts can mislead the readers, preventing design mistakes, exploring new tools for design available online, making projects using webflow, introducing JAMStack and creation of simple designs using JAMStack. Sketching new projects using no code and JAMStack will also be discussed.

The fee for the event for one day is Rs 17000 + GST and Rs 27500 + GST for WAN IFRA members. For non members, the fee is Rs 20,000 + GST for one day and Rs 30,000 + GST for both days. Registrations will be closed by 10 August 2019.

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.
