Rolling Stone magazine is at a turning point in its history. This conference celebrates its contributions to the worlds of typography, publication design, photography and illustration — and considers the changes ahead for the iconic brand.
Friday, May 25th 9am to 6:30pm
SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd Street, NYC
The event brings together the people who created a design legacy, from Rolling Stone’s first Art Director to its current one — plus photo editors and photographers who’ve immortalized a whole culture.
If you are interested in design, photography, typography, or rock and roll — you’ll want to be there. We’ll take stock of the magazine’s visual record as it embarks on its next 50 years — and a new partnership with Penske Media Corporation.
Five Rolling Stone Art Directors will present including John Williams, the first Art Director, who launched the magazine's classic typography in 1967, in a dramatic move away from the underground style of the time. Other presenters include famous RS alumni like Chris Austopchuk, Lloyd Ziff, and the influential photo editor, Laurie Kratochvil.
The 15 speakers will tell great stories and show amazing covers and layout. And also explain what they learned, and how they apply the knowledge to contemporary design and typography.
The conference is being organized by TYPE Magazine and its editor, Roger Black. Roger helped organize the precedent-setting Type 1987 conference for TDC, as well as ATypI, Type 90, and the first Typographics conference in 2015.
The Art of Rolling Stone is going to be in the same league. Full details on the TYPE magazine site. You'll want to be there.

Among the highlights of the program will be Debbie Millman’s interview of TDC Medalist, type designer, Matthew Carter for her popular podcast, Design Matters.
CADC presents —The Sport of Design.
Eric Panke who is a gap-toothed Art Director (and Illustrator) who occasionally dabbles in the copywriting world who brings nearly 20 years of award-winning creative direction, design and art direction to the table. He is presently a Creative Director at Adams & Knight in Avon, CT and has a wealth of experience across every medium and a wide range of industries.
Hailing from the Northern English town of Preston, Neil Jamieson came to the US in 2001 with a sleeping bag, an unpaid internship and a dream to be a magazine art director (although he had no idea what exactly a magazine art director was). His 17 year editorial design journey started shortly after scoring an entry level gig in the bull pen of Sports Illustrated and learned the ropes with some amazing pro's in the hardest working art dept in publishing.
Field & Stream magazine followed 6 years later where he worked on his first redesign, built his first art department and caught his first Marlin (sorta...he was on the boat when it happened).
In 2014 he headed north to Bristol, CT to continue his digital odyssey as Creative Director of digital content at ESPN, and somehow, at some point during all of that, he was lucky enough to serve as President of the Society of Publication Designers.
