Ryerson University's Advanced Publishing Workshop

Saturday, November 7, 2009 - 9:00am



This workshop is intended for editors who work with designers and designers who work with editors. Too often, these two key figures in the publication process fail to understand each other's roles. What can be a highly creative
partnership is fettered by lack of information, inappropriate communication and unrealistic expectations.
Developing the tools to build a more effective engagement, the workshop covers the following topics: the stages of the editorial/design liaison; what a designer should ask; what an editor should ask; art assessment for editors; preparing a design brief and art manuscript; supplying imagery; editing illustrative materials; constructive (and unconstructive) feedback; and real and imaginary cost savings.

Workshop Leaders:

Camilla Blakeley has twenty years of experience, both in house and freelance, as an editor in academic publishing and business communications. She believes that forging constructive relations with the author and designer is at the heart of effective print production.

Gary Blakeley has spent thirty years as a graphic designer for arts, academic, and business communications and is an experienced photographer. He believes that typography and image must work fluently together in successful design.

Cost is $120. Registration is limited !!
