Eureka vs. The Washington Post
During judging for the 34th SND Best of News Design competition, two fantastic Gold medalists made the final cut into the discussion for being named "Best in Show." The Times of London's science magazine Eureka wowed judges with some of the smartest art directing they'd ever scene. The Washington Post's election coverage was vast and extensive, spanning almost an entire year, but the design and illustration remained consistently perfect throughout the entirety of the entry. Only one could be named "Best in Show". After a historic discussion about the deservingness of each, it seemed one of the two would win the honor. Though, after a final vote, no "Best in Show" was named. We'll relive the discussion, let you hear the debate, and see if the audience would vote differently.

Writing the right display type

Do you find yourself writing a lot of headline, caption, promo and breakout type? Hitting the right tone, remaining accurate, when to use a display art head and when to be direct, and being conversational all can be a struggle, especially if you're working in both print and digital platforms. We'll review best practices for both platforms, going over longtime print display type advice and more recent, SEO-specific online advice.

This is Not My Beautiful Chart, this is Not My Beautiful Map

What the fuck does “data visualization” mean? This session, led by Jennifer Daniel, formerly the Graphics Director at Bloomberg Businessweek, offers an honest discussion about how information graphics are more than just about describing relationships and revealing patterns—they're about being curious and creating a sense of wonder. Currently working as a graphics editor at The New York Times, she'll talk about what it’s like to have one foot in research, one foot in design, a hand in illustration and another hand in editing—then putting any remaining appendages to use on top of that.

Play Ball: How the Nationals changed sports design at the Post

The Nationals' surprising 2012 pennant run led to award-winning work from The Washington Post sports team. Brian Gross will talk about the role he and Chris Rukan played in helping plan and shape the coverage, and design elements that they developed that have now been incorporated in other sports. You can also look for a dose of the Olympics, and of course RGIII.

The machine influence on data design

Designing information graphics is hard work and requires several unique skill sets. Code libraries like D3 and tools like Illustrator help to extend our capabilities. How do computers help humans tell data-driven stories? What are the possibilities and where are the missing links? Do certain software tools hinder or help the creative process? For this talk, we'll explore the role of software in data storytelling. You'll also learn about innovative new resources that could help you build better data graphics.
