Are writers expendable? Not these writers! There is a new Meetup group in the Bay Area. It’s the Society for News Design San Francisco (SNDSF). No longer reporters or writers, in the new digital world there are news designers. Here’s the Meetup introduction.
This is a group for anyone interested in designing stories for any medium and learning from others’ experiences. The Society for News Design (SND) is an international organization for news media professionals and visual communicators who create print, web, mobile publications and products. Our members art direct, design, edit, report, illustrate, make photos and video, visualize data and write code.
In my blogs I’ve been harping on the idea that future writers must do more than just write. They must be multimedians. And the SND seems to embrace that concept whole hog.
