Central Saint Martins Graphics were proud to host the third Modern Magazine conference this year, welcoming just under 200 editorial designers publishers and editors to Granary Square.

Scott Dadich appeared by video link from Wired Magazine’s studio in San Francisco together with art director Billy Sorrentino. 40 BA Graphics and BA Fashion Journalism students attended the full day’s programme.

Highlights of the day included: a talk by Mushpit editors Charlotte Roberts and Bertie Brandes; BA Graphic Design alumni David Lane’s rags to riches story of food magazine The Gourmand, which included an amusing short film of a gherkins chandelier; and Cath Caldwell’s Magazine handling session, featuring material examples of Twen, Esquire, Ray Gun and Nova.

The Graphic Communication Design programme hosted after party drinks in the Graphics studio, where staff and students met the speakers and attendees. Host Jeremy Leslie from Mag Culture and Cath Caldwell from CSM were delighted with the team of runners and helpers who worked behind the scenes to make this the smoothest conference yet. Park Communications, Monotype and Commerical Type magazine kindly sponsored the event.
