The Talk in Oslo
Last fall I was invited to speak at IGM Magasindesign Konferansen in Oslo, Norway. IGM produces programs, intensive courses, and conferences for students, professionals and executives in the creative fields. The conference was certainly a rarity these days — it was dedicated to print magazine design.
My fellow speakers included Alex Hunting (Creative Director, Kinfolk) and Nick Thackray (CD, Hearst UK), both from London, Heval Okcuoglu (Editor-in-Chief, 212 Magazine) from Istanbul, Tom O’Quinn (CD, Thrillist, and formerly CD, Airbnb Magazine) from New York, as well as Stein Øvre, from Oslo agency Creuna. We were also treated to a mini-concert by Agnes Stock, a competitor on The Voice Norway.
Oslo is a terrific city, and fall is a great time visit. Thanks very much to Trine Skaug Væråmoen and Hanne Josefsen for the invitation and for their warm hospitality — and koselig.
