Designers and editors

 

Meeting: Wednesday 27 February 2008
Friends Lounge, National Library of Australia, Parkes Place, Canberra
6.30 pm, networking and nibbles from 6.00 pm

Renee Bennett, of Design One, will talk about ‘The relationship between designers and editors’. She will focus on how that relationship can be made productive, so that design of a document complements the text and highlights key points, making the finished product visually appealing and easy to read.

Renee qualified in Canberra before starting work for Design One. She joined the studio when it was under the direction of the former managing director and well-known Canberra graphic designer, Bill Pearson. Renee’s long-term ambition to become a turkey farmer helped her to stand out from other potential employees!

Currently ACT President of the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA), Renee was an ACT finalist in the Young Business Woman category of the Telstra Business Women’s Awards in 2006.

Renee has been at the forefront of Design One’s strong focus on
environmental issues, and the studio has received several awards in this
area, including the 2007 NOWaste Business Award and the 2006 Print and Graphic Excellence (PAGE) Award for Environmental Excellence.

Come along to hear what you can do to work more effectively with designers while reducing the environmental footprint of your publications.
