Designing News in Singapore
Singapore's BooksActually invites award-winning editorial and infographics designer Francesco Franchi to give a special lecture about his newly released book Designing News: Changing the World of Editorial Design and Information Graphics, published by Gestalten.
In the book, Francesco Franchi conveys his vision for the future of the news and media industries. He evaluates the fundamental changes that are taking place in our digital age in terms of consumer expectations and the way media is being used. The book then outlines the challenges that result and proposes strategies for traditional publishing houses, broadcasting companies, journalists, and designers to address them.
Designing News explores how today’s media outlets can become credible, cross-platform news brands. Franchi advocates redefining reporting as telling a continuous narrative across a broad range of traditional and digital media. To this end, he proposes a new, integrated role for editorial designers in advancing the evolution of media for the future.
Franchi’s findings in the book are based on his own work for Il Sole 24 ORE as well as case studies by the top media insiders Richard Turley of Bloomberg Businessweek, Daniele Codega of Thomson Reuters, Steve Duenes of the New York Times, Mark Porter formerly of the Guardian, Matt Curtis of the Times, Oliver Reichstein of Information Architects, Adrien Bosc of Feuilleton et Desports, and type designer Christian Schwartz.
About the author:
Francesco Franchi is an editorial and information designer, and since 2008, the art director for IL – Intelligence in Lifestyle, the monthly news magazine of Il Sole 24 ORE, one of Italy’s top financial newspapers. Embracing new languages in journalism, Franchi is a true master of combining representation and interpretation, creating a visual form that is as graphic as it is narrative, as entertaining as it is informative. His work has been awarded on numerous occasions, including the European Design Awards and at the renowned Malofiej conference.
