If you haven't already heard about the new Editorial Design Organisation, then maybe now is a good reason to sign up. The EDO is a not-for-profit body administered by editorial designers for editorial designers. It sets out to do three things:
• To promote and develop the skill, knowledge and appreciation of editorial design in magazines, newspapers and websites.
• To inform and generate debate among professionals working within the industry.
• To inspire and encourage students and young professionals entering the field.
Plus for £40 a year, you get to go to all their events for free. Next Wednesday, Janet Froelich, Creative Director of The New York Times and of T: The New York Times Style Magazine joins typographer Jonathan Hoefler in their American Night held at The London College of Fashion.
