Read the paper, damn it! I would feel unarmed attacking a day of creative thinking if I hadn’t read The New York Times early that morning. – George Lois, 2012* n Advertising
guru George Lois (born 1931, inventor of Big Idea advertising) may belong to a different time than the new breed of media workers, who grew up with twitter, blogs, and Facebook. But he sure has made his mark in the graphic design world, creating great art direction for Esquire Magazine, MTV, and Tommy Hilfiger to name a few. In his small book, Damn Good Advice (for people with talent) he gives some of his experience back to the next generation of creatives – in the form of short, inyour-face advice on how to be creative. His book includes the statement above – followed by this comment: “For you young generation of techies, reading in-depth journalism in a great newspaper beats the unedited, non-fact-checking bloggers every day of the week”. Perhaps his point is not so much related to the printed paper, but more to the kind of reading that the newspaper supplies you with. Lois describes this as the “visceral, informative, investigative, and analytical power of the world’s great newspapers”. Television or the internet can’t even come close to this, says Lois. Nevertheless, today’s media still seem to be focusing on the quick news rather than slow reading.
Javier Errea has also made his mark – on the editorial design of newspapers and websites all over the world – and he also has opinions about the way news travels across platforms today. In the final keynote presentation at the SNDS WRONG conference, one of Javier’s slides carried these few words: “Twitter? Participation? Customization? Forget it!” No, his message was, give me ugly newspapers. They are so much more fun. And they tell so many good stories – which, as you can see on the cover of this magazine, was his worthy salute in the very last slide of a great conference in Copenhagen. George Lois sums up his advice for the tweeting generation in this way: “Twitter less, think more”.
include several new initiatives – we present some of them on the next few pages (4–5). We’ll compete again The other major event under the auspices of SNDS, the Best of Scandinavian News Design competition, will also change substantially this year. The digital part of the competition has been given a complete overhaul and now includes categories such as “Data-project” and “TV-experience”. Read all about the competition on pages 8 and 10–11. Deadline for entering in the competition is 27 January 2014 – so start finding those great designs now. More info will be available on the snds.org website soon. …and more We also have the pleasure of bringing you Mario García’s review of a new book about news design; and Søren Nyeland, head of design at Danish Politiken brings us a report from the SND Louisville seminar and workshop. Oh, and if you haven’t noticed, SNDS now has a new President – Flemming Hvidtfeldt – and new board members. We present them on page 29. Enjoy it all – in between Christmas preparations which, we assume, will be your primary concern in the next few days. Have a great holiday, and see you next year! n
We’ll meet again Back to Copenhagen. In this issue, we bring you ten pages (p. 12–21) of photos from the Wrong conference days – in no way a complete view of speakers or events, but a glimpse of what you missed if you weren’t there. Many speakers gave great presen tations, and we can only show a few. Dagens Nyheter took home the big award as “Scandinavia’s Best Designed Newspaper”, and the pink theme was omnipresent, from the colour of Sami Valtere’s shirt to the welcome drinks. Next year’s event will also be in Copenhagen, same place, almost same time: 9–10 October 2014, and the title will be FU2ION14. The programme will

There will be several workshops that will teach you skills in both printed newsdesign, the latest technologies and best practices in digital cross-platform design!
Conference start-up with style As on the wrong 2013 conference we kickstart the conference with a welcome drink, worldknown keynote speakers and cosy networking in the breaks. And don’t worry: We’ll set up the nice buffet, just to get you fueled for the rest of the evening.
THE SNDS CONFERENCE IN 2014

This is ensured to get your attention as each one races through their presentaion in about 6-7 minutes. Sharp, focused to-the-point presentations that will leave you inspired!
Night out in Copenhagen As the city lights has turned on, so do we. Thursday night the SNDS expedition will be heading out in the Copenhagen Nightlife in a guided tour to a fancy bar. That’s all we need to keep the fuse lit and the talk going.
Great line-up of speakers We are already talking to speakers that we want you to learn and get inspired from. To keep you focused and because we will have such great speakers from all around the world, we have only one track in the program friday. There will be ten speakers lined up, talking for 30 minutes each and you even get a break each hour to exchange ideas and network!
Morning yoga or running session On friday morning you can choose to go for a guided run around the lakes of Copenhagen (6.5km) with fellow newsdesigners – or you can energize your mind and body in a special yoga-session.

You forgot it in print The programme committee behind next year’s SNDS FU2I0N14 conference have already nailed some of the names on the speaker list. In this and the next issues of SNDS Magazine, we will be presenting them to you. Here is the first.
Søren Nyeland firstname.lastname@example.org
n FU2I0N14 proudly presents Creative Director Michael Renaud from Pitchfork as a speaker. He conducted the famous pyromaniac photo session with Daft Punk in a parking lot in California... and he still joins court hearings as a result. But first of all he is a non-bullshit, humble and selftaught designer of a Hipster site. And soon Pitchfork will move to a new exclusive platform: A printed edition on December 14th! Join
FU2I0N14 in October next year and listen to the wise words of a lowkey but very inspiring speaker. Pitchfork, one of the most respected music news and review sites in the World, is immersed in Renaud’s visual brilliance and art direction. Beyond creating illustrations for the site, and poster artwork for Pitchfork’s festivals and shows, Renaud’s art direction of ”Cover Stories” has design circles buzzing, in addition to being honored as one of Ad Age’s Creativity 50. The longform, immersive design expertly blends words and visuals while creating
a unique story-consuming experience. Renaud most recently helped launch “Nothing Major”, Pitchfork’s visual culture website, and he’s currently working on the debut of “The Dissolve”, the site’s foray into all things cinema. Check out some of Pitchfork’s Cover Stories here: E pitchfork.com/features/cover-story/reader/ bat-for-lashes/ E pitchfork.com/features/cover-story/reader/ cat-power/ E pitchfork.com/features/cover-story/reader/ savages/

The FUSION has started Next year, SNDS will introduce two brand new print categories in the Best of Scandinavian News Design competition. Flemming Hvidtfeldt email@example.com
print – as well as the online – part of the “Best of Scandinavian News Design” competition is constantly developing. This year we are introducing the prize “Honorable Mention” instead of the prize “Award of Excellence”. The change of name does not mean that the number of prizes to be handed out will become smaller than previous years. But the new name will reflect the value of the prize better. The first new category in the print competition also reflects the wish to expand the competition. The new category is only for Scandinavian and Finnish media houses that publish weekly and
monthly magazines. A special invitation will be sent out to the media houses which includes Aller Media, Sanomat Media and Egmont Media. The other new category that will be new for the upcoming competition is portfolio, which is known from SND’s competition. In this category the following rules: Submit six (6) pages by one designer. Entries with fewer than six pages, more than six pages or that name more than one individual will be disqualified. Team projects in this category should be entered as a staff portfolio. In the competition committee we believe that the new categories will appeal to designers and will raise the total numbers of entries to the competition. n

Designing news Francesco Franchi’s new book, Designing News, is a complete and well-illustrated dissection of the state of the world of information circa 2013. This is why everyone working in media today should read it. Dr. Mario R. García email@example.com
is not easy to write a book about news, the news industry and all the transformations and reshufflings that our media industry is undergoing. Changes occur rapidly. New ways and habits for obtaining information change almost as quickly as the seasons, or perhaps faster. Recently, I have been discussing the need to update my own digital book The iPad Design Lab: Storytelling in the Age of the Tablet, merely one year in the market. This, of course, is exciting and challenging. (And the subject of another blog post for another day!). So I applaud a new entry into the library of news and news design books.
Francesco Franchi’s Designing News is a complete and up to the minute (well, almost!) dissection of the state of the world of information circa 2013. Francesco is Art director, Il Sole 24 ORE in Italy. I also respect very much that a busy art director had the time to devote to the researching and writing of this 240-page hardbound book, which abounds in illustrations, charts and rather lengthy texts. Designing News is divided into three main buckets of content: Transformations in the World of Information, Redesign and Rethink. Subheads guide the reader to topics that are timely and could be controversial for some: Making Sense of a Digital World, Change or Die, Redesign as Rethinking. Perhaps one of the highlights of Designing News is the use of case stud-
ies, among which the best are those for Feuilleton, Reuters, and The Guardian. I found the author’s references to historical landmarks of the past 20 years for our industry to be a helpful addition as he takes us from “the end of twentieth century ideology” to the “advent of twenty-first century technology, in all its forms and dimensions.“ Franchi delivers on his promise as his book is a complete “media quartet” review of the various platforms. He does not emphasize one platform over the other. In fact, print lovers will enjoy the Redesign/Rethinking portions of the book, with illustrations that could make one think he is flipping through the pages of those famous SND publications. This book is a celebration of print, and one can’t help but conclude that many innovative approaches are taking
Change or Die Designing News is not all about a rosy and exciting present and future. In the aptly titled Change or Die segment, Franchi asks the question: Newspapers in crisis? For a few pages, he presents a bit of media necrology here with sample illustrations from some already gone print publications as Newsweek magazine and Financial Times Deutschland. His visit to the print cemetery is brief, then he picks up a sunny step: It is not that newspapers are dying, but that one way of making newspapers is coming to an end. The good news, says Franchi, is that we are reaching readers via Twitter and the other social networks. The result is “the greatest growth in the number of print copies sold in decent decades” for publications like the Spectator, a historic conservative American magazine. Franchi turns to his own backyard, Italy, and reports that new niche

products such as the Milan Review and Studio have been created recently, with much success. The Milan Review is a literary magazine,“ Franchi writes, “…it has no physical editorial offices or warehouses…” Conclusion Designing News is not just about design and that is another reason this book is such a valuable tool for the teaching of journalism, both in formal classrooms, as well as in newsroom seminars and workshops. The author understands clearly that today’s design discussion must be part of a larger landscape.
Franchi writes about the realities of producing content in a multi platform world and dives into the reasons, as when he writes: The age we live in seems to be the test bench not for individual thought but for collective thought. Media capable of effectively reflecting this transformation have perhaps not yet been invented. This book is a good guide to imagine what that media might be like, while learning to transform ourselves in the present to make sense of the digital world in which we work. Designing News will be required reading for my Columbia University students this spring. It should also be must read for everyone who works with n the media today. This review has previously been published on The Mario Blog, where you can also read Mario’s interview with Francesco Franchi. Mario García is CEO of Garcia Media and the Hearst Digital Media Professor in Residence at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. E www.garciamedia.com
place in the design of printed newspapers and magazines. Franchi admires The Guardian, but he also includes such design innovators as Portugal’s “I”, The Independent (London), New York Magazine and Monocle, and the examples shown shine.
The Awesome Show The two Scandinavian newspapers Dagens Nyheter and Politiken were two of this year’s five SND World’s Best Designed Newspapers, and both sent people to Louisville to pick up their awards at the SNDLOU seminar and workshop. Here’s some of the impressions Politiken’s Søren Nyeland took home from the event.
Søren Nyeland firstname.lastname@example.org Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. Cassius Clay 1964 Following up on his poetic imagery the young boxer from Louisville entered the ring and knocked out – TKO – the reigning world champion Sonny Liston. Shortly after that bout, Cassius Clay joined the Nation of Islam and changed his name to Muhammad Ali. Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams – they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do – they all contain truths Muhammad Ali
Louisville is a jewel on the Ohio River, Kentucky. It is home of Muhammad Ali and it’s no wonder that the city created The Muhammad Ali Center to celebrate their own famous however controversial son. And it’s no wonder that the SND leadership chose this award-winning setting – much more than a museum – to celebrate SND’s 35th anniversary on November 7-9, 2013. This museum captures the inspiration derived from the story of Ali’s incredible life … you’re actually allowed to touch a pair of his gigantic boxing gloves and in the dark inner space of the building you get seated in comfortable sofas to enjoy the full length version of the probably best boxing match ever – The Rumble in the Jungle – featuring George Foreman against Muhammad Ali in Zaire.
Happy hours Glimpses from the Louisville days – at the Muhammad Ali Center, at the race track and sneaky places off-programme. Photos: Søren Nyeland.
Is that all you got, George? Muhammad Ali, Zaire 1974 Yep ... that’s about it.” George Foreman, Zaire 1974 The SNDLOU 2013 program didn’t really feature any heavyweight speakers – except of course the seven times World Best Designed Newspaper winner Haika Hinze, Die Zeit, Germany. But it featured the next generation of news designers and set a fresh focus on today’s trends in digital media. A great representative of this direction was the well-dressed young gentleman Joye Marburger from The Washington. While young Marburger develops design strategy for mobile he build on the thinking of media guru Marshall McLuhan. This McLuhan approach has been seen before.
The winners The Design Editors Richard Franck from Dagens Nyheter, Vanessa Wyse from The Grid and Søren Nyeland from Politiken celebrate the price as World’s Best Designed Newspaper. Other winners of World’s Best Designed Newspaper 2012 were Welt am Sonntag and Die Zeit. Former SND-president Gayle Grin is behind the camera. Photo: Gayle Grin In another fine speech Design Director Vivian Selbo from Slate asked “What’s the difference between responsive and adaptive design anyway?” and followed up with The statement “Slate is liquid design”. Also Platform Designer David Wright from Twitter addressed responsive design by using a famous Jonathan
Ivy quote: “like trying to make one pair of shoes to fit everybody’s feet”. It almost felt like a coordinated speaker attack on ‘responsive design’. And it really would have been a refreshing experience to round up this attack with Jonathan Ivy himself from Apple as a speaker. This should be the ambition for future SND conferences.
But Marburger argued convincingly that McLuhan’s book The Extensions of Man (1964) is more relevant than ever. In this pioneering study in media theory, it is proposed that the media, not the content that it carries, should be the focus of study. And in short Marburger concluded that “responsive design is not a mobile strategy”.

The young new names dominated this conference. There was a lot of new faces among the audience. This also means that the voice has changed slightly. The f*ck word was used in so many variations and with such stamina that it was an inspiration in itself. This was only overshadowed by the use of the word “Awesome”! This is how it is my Scandinavian friends … ‘cool’ is totally out … and ‘awesome’ is in. Best practice in these wordgames showed Graphics Director Jennifer Daniel from Bloomsberg Businessweek (however recently headhunted by New York Times) in what was simply a modern tribute to wild creativity and a content-driven approach to illustration. Another fresh speaker on the program was Copy Editor Neil Holdway who focused on the art of hitting the right tone in headlines, captions and promos for digital platforms. In between the speeches a so-called International SND Hacktucky hackathon took place. This was a competition in designing a locally focused, digital product. Five teams participated in this intense 24 hour hackathon and
the proud winner was The YourMapper Team and the “Next Bus project”. The Next Bus uses TARC’s realtime bus data, merged with curated local events. Choose the event you like and the time you want to arrive, then get a text message five minutes before you need to walk out the door to make the first bus stop based on the bus’s actual location. That’s it – dead simple! This workshop really added to the SNDLOU spirit and served as inspiration for what we’ll do in Scandinavia in future conferences. The man who has no imagination has no wings Muhammad Ali The Onion, a king in the world of satire, was the internet’s first comedy site. Today the publication thrives behind sharp writing and smart development across multiple platforms. The playful Editorial Manager Ben Berkley and Web Producer Jordan David from “America’s Finest News Source” were insulting the SNDLOU audience for

more than an hour ... and the audience loved it. The behind-the-scenes working process is mind-opening but it’s hard to tell if this process would be an inspiration for any ‘serious’ media brand. The recipe is simple: It always starts with working for hours with the headline. And the text will not be written until that headline is perfect. Here’s a fine example of a frontpage display headline: “Black Guy Asks Nation For Change” (from Obama’s First presidential campaign starting in Chicago, see illustration above). Inside of a ring or out, ain’t nothing wrong with going down. It’s staying down that’s wrong. Muhammad Ali The finest key speaker at SNDLOU might have been Creative Director and self taught designer Michael Renaud from Pitchfork. One of Renaud’s design mantras goes like this: “Don’t let the fuckers get you down”. That mantra made Renaud survive while developing the Pitchfork design. Today Pitchfork is one of the most respected music news and review sites in the world. Michael Renaud explained that people get caught up in

convention) and partying SNDLOU guests. And the Starwars universe finds it’s reflections in nearby locations like the Louisville Slugger Museum with the world’s biggest baseball bat placed up against the building, the Hard Rock Café housing the machine gun guitar of Alice Cooper, Joe’s Crab Shack on the River with wild sharks flying in the air and food trucks serving French Indo-Canadian food which is eclectic in style and difficult to pronounce. But it’s easy to eat and tastes like candy from outer space.
The program offered many more fine speakers on old beaten subjects, such as Jonathon Berlin, Josh Crutchmer and Rob Schneider on “The State of A1”. During this session the sunset over the River Ohio invaded the beautiful ‘Viewpoint North Auditorium’ through the enormous panorama windows. It almost felt like the final count down for paper. But the three gentlemen still believe that something could be done to American front pages. In USA designing A1s has become just an everyday routine job which results in a redundant look even on days with breaking news. Berlin showed examples from papers around the globe that dare break the routines and create great front pages for the printed paper. Scandinavia was pointed out as a role model for creating daring front

Muhammad Ali The Muhammad Ali Center is only one of many sites in Louisville. The nearby Galt House hotel is another. In it’s gigantic halls with panorama lifts, rotating restaurant, kinky Christmas lightning and fairy dust you almost felt like caught in Jabba the Hutts Palace!

The SNDLOU people know how to celebrate. The first night offered live horse race and bourbon in classic Louisville style at Churchill Downs, next evening offered Lebowski style bowling downtown – of course with some proud Scandinavians on the winning team: Pelle Asplund from Dagens Nyheter and Johannes Holmertz from di.se. And the final closing event took place in a beautiful space called The Icehouse. This final party was great fun and good food in spite of a poorly

prepared Award Show. It’s always surprising that the nation that invented the Oscar celebrations and gave birth to Muhammad Ali makes such introvert award ceremonies. Proud news designers from Germany, Canada, Sweden and Denmark stood ready to receive their trophies on stage. But nothing really happened. This could and should be dramatically improved in upcoming events since SND founded the most important newspaper competition in the world. The winners should be presented in a decent manner in a golden moment of joy! In this respect the SND could learn from SNDS. Superman don’t need no seat belt. Muhammad Ali The presentation of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award was executed with much more style and glamour. Harris Siegel was the well deserved receiver of the prize. Over the years many Scandinavian judges in the Syracuse competitions have met this bandana-clad and charismatic superman who gave all he got at explaining, conducting and driving the judges through page after page

and decision after decision. Besides that he is an excellent designer of enthusiastic sports pages and eventdriven city guide journalism. My way of joking is to tell the truth. That’s the funniest joke in the world. Muhammad Ali A final speech was made by Stefan Knapp – the German chairman of the next SND conference in Frankfurt, September 2014. Knapp proclaimed with fine self-irony that Germans are very funny – and he got his big laugh from the audience. Knapp finally handed over a handful of balloons in the national colors – yellow, red and black – to the newly elected SND Chairman David Kordalski. Since David is a heavyweight in thought but small in stature he floated away like a butterfly! Hopefully we’ll see him sting like a bee in Frankfurt. To stay in the rhetorics of the Greatest – Muhammad Ali. n

DON’T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO ENTER THE BEST OF NEWS DESIGN A CREATIVE COMPETITION OPEN TO ALL MAGAZINES AND NEWSPAPERS JAN. 15, 2014 U.S. DEADLINE JAN. 22, 2014 NON-U.S. DEADLINE SPONSORED BY THE SOCIETY FOR NEWS DESIGN AND THE S.I. NEWHOUSE SCHOOL OF PUBLIC COMMUNICATIONS AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY
Newcomers From left to right: Vice President Anne Laitinen (FIN), President Flemming Hvidtfeldt (DK), and Lill Mostad (NO) are new members of the SNDS board.
New faces on the SNDS board n The
general assembly for SNDS elected Flemming Hvidtfeldt (Denmark) as the new president of SNDS for the next two years. He takes over from Anders Tapola (Sweden) who has been president since 2007. Anders Tapola continues as the Swedish member of the SNDS board. Flemming is a well-known man for SNDS since he has and still is heading the committee of the Best of Scandinavian News Design competition that is co-hosted by SNDS. “Having the same person as president for SNDS and chairman for the competition will improve the synergy between the conference and the competition, which we feel is needed,” says Flemming Hvidtfeldt. Flemming Hvidtfeldt is very aware that it is a challenging task he has taken in the ever-growing diverse media landscape. “Our main purpose is to ensure the sharing and knowledge of good news design in Scandinavia. That is our main foundation. But we are also aware that SNDS is challenged and we need to increase the knowledge of SNDS in a broader media production than has been the case so far,“ says Flemming Hvidtfeldt. The future SNDS also has exciting projects coming up in the near future. The design competition will soon start to take
entries. Both the print and the digital part of the competition will see many exciting changes (see pages 8–11). Next year’s conference is set to take place in Copenhagen October 9-10, and will have the theme “FUSION”. New board members The general assembly in Copenhagen also elected Anne Laitinen (Finland) as a new member of the board. She replaces Stefani Urmas. Anne Laitinen is the Design editor at Turun Sanomat, and describes herself as a “journalist and a print-lover-anda-believer”. At the moment, she is

working on a major redesign process at Turun Sanomat. Previously, she has worked at the Finnish newspapers Kaleva and Keskisuomalainen. Anne Laitinen was elected Vice President at the board meeting 23 November 2013. Why is it important to be a member of SNDS, we asked her: “SNDS is a family-like group of very gifted colleagues. That’s quite something, since design-orientated people are so few at one’s workplace. Also, the SNDS congresses are worldfamous: very inspirational and educative. And fun”, Anne Laitinen says. Another relatively new member of the board is Lill Mostad from Frederiksstad Blad, Norway, who joined the board in May, replacing the previous Norwegian member Kristian Nilsen, who has moved to South America. The general assembly also said goodbye to Lars Andersson (Sweden), who decided to leave the board after having represented Sweden since 2007. Treasurer and business manager for SNDS is still Frank Stjerne (Denmark). A warm welcome onboard to the new members – and a heartfelt thank you for years of work in the board to the members who are leaving.

There is a new sheriff in town – or rather, a new president in the organization.

SNDS Magazine 2013|4 The President
Challenging times SNDS President Flemming Hvidtfeldt firstname.lastname@example.org n How do we develop an organization like Society for News Design Scandinavia in an ever developing world and media landscape, where more and more mediahouses are changing from print to web in different formats? In fact, I shouldn’t write media houses. It is the customers who are changing their behaviors. What the traditional media houses are doing is trying to keep up with the pace of change among people. And until now they haven’t succeeded very well. This is the same challenge that SNDS is facing. We have been facing it for quite a while. Now’s the time to do something about it.
As an organization who wants to exist for the benefit of good design and in fact also for good and relevant journalism we are challenged. The foundation we have been building on since our start more than 25 years ago is erupting. We will not exist a decade from now if we do not develop. If we do not think of new ways of how we can be relevant, interesting and inspirational for the members. The profile of a member in the coming years is not the same as it was ten or twenty years ago. In fact it will be different people. It will be very – in the traditional eyes – different people with different skills. It will not only be journalists, copy editors, editors and print designers. We should have information architects, web developers, web designers and magazine designers among our members as well. And maybe even other people with other skills. On top of this we have to bear in mind, that we will not survive without new ideas, new ways of thinking and new ways of offering deals relevant

and inspirational to the members. Not only the members today, but to the members to come. We have started our journey into the future in order to secure the future of Society for News Design Scandinavia. We are developing the competition. The web part of the competition has been growing in the last three years, and we have now included the national broadcasting companies in the web competition. I hope that even more media companies will participate in the digital competition in the years to come. We also have made quite a few major changes in the digital categories in order to get more entries to the competition. But it is up to us – all of us – to secure that. Furthermore, this year we are inviting Scandinavian and Finnish media houses, who publish weekly and monthly magazines, to participate in the print competition. A special category is developed for these entries. At this point, ten months before the annual conference is to be held, we are ready with parts of the program which – hopefully – will attract new visitors. So the members of the board are working on getting a new start. But it’s not enough. We have to broaden our perspective even more. And for that I and the whole board need your help. We need your inspiration, your ideas, your input to the work of becoming more modern and more relevant to as many people as possible, so we all have an organization that’s relevant to the members. Feel free to e-mail any suggestions to me or one of the members of board. It will be highly appreciated.
