TALK: WIRED’s Digital Rebirth
Friday, August 27
Traditionally, magazine designers and editors have been well-equipped to create compelling experiences in print, but highly crafted digital formats have proven more elusive. With the arrival of the iPad, Condé Nast’s WIRED—in partnership with Adobe—is leading an industry-wide revolution in how people experience and consume magazines. Join Wyatt Mitchell, Design Director of WIRED as he walks through the behind-the-scenes process for the creation of a new digital version of WIRED.
Wyatt Mitchell is the Design Director at Wired magazine. He joined the Wired editorial art department in 2007, bringing a broad range of magazine experience. Previously, Mitchell has held titles at VIBE, Esquire, Details and O, The Oprah Magazine. He has received over 30 national design and editorial awards from groups such as the Society of Publication Designers, Print magazine and Communication Arts. In his spare time he practices to become the oldest important jazz pianist.
