The Art of Rolling Stone
Friday, May 25, 2018 9:00 am
Event hosted by: TYPE Magazine
Presented by TYPE magazine. Sponsored by Rolling Stone, Penske Media Corporation (PMC), and Alta Magazine.
A one-day conference about the type and design of Rolling Stone.
The visual lessons of the first 50 years of Rolling Stone magazine.
The magazine, after 50 years, has new ownership, so this is a good time to take stock of what it’s contributed to the world of typography—and in publication design, photography and illustration.
TYPE brings together a dozen or more of the key players to show what they’ve done and what they’re doing.
If you’re interested in typographic branding, magazine art direction, the culture of rock and roll, or the history of graphic design, this event will provide insight into one of the most influential publications of our time. And entertainment. Rolling Stone has approached music and politics with real energy, and these speakers are energetic, to put it mildly.
Community sponsors include the Society of Publication Designers (SPD), Type Directors Club (TDC), and the Society for News Design (SND).
