Following the success of last year’s event, The Modern Magazine returns on 19th September as part of the London Design Festival as a one-day conference co-hosted by Jeremy Leslie and Liv Siddall. The 2014 edition focuses on the future of publishing, with guest speakers from across the world gathering to discuss their take on what happens next as the publishing industry continues to work out its future. Despite the many challenges presented today, we continue to witness some of the most exciting innovations in design and content in what magCulture’s Jeremy Leslie has described as “a new golden age”.
We’ll hear from Adam Moss, editor of iconic US magazine New York about balancing print and digital, from David Moretti, design director of Wired Italia about designing for print and iPad, and from Jeremy Langmead about content marketing. We also have a strong representation of key figures from the independent magazine world.
Here are some images of last years speakers:
