2010 Design in the E-book Era
Design in the E-book Era
What are we designing? Book jackets or thumbnails on Amazon? Printed pages or E-book screens? Can an arresting jacket image, a distinctive type treatment, or a strong visual concept be modified to take advantage of new media? Can this be done without compromising the printed piece? Is there a place for the print designer in the e-book world? At this roundtable-style session, we will discuss how designers and art directors can navigate the parallel and sometimes opposing requirements of the print and digital arenas.
Chair: Maria Lindenfeldar, Art Director, Princeton University Press
