Conference Program Content Loading & Design

Conference Program Content Loading & Design

For this 50-page conference program, I teamed up with Chuck Fultz of Ronningen Design to update the previous year's design. This was largely a matter of updating layouts with new content, but also included designing new pages and a few advertisements.

 6-7  AD / PROGRAM AREAS   I created a fresh layout for the Program Areas page. The conference session topics are divided into five color-coded categories.

 10-11  FRIDAY SCHEDULE   Managing the schedule updates was a project in itself. For the two-day conference, the speakers, session times, and locations were continually changing up until the program went to print. So I had to keep pace to maintain accuracy and layout integrity.

 12-13  SESSIONS   As I handled the most important session details in the Schedule, I also updated the descriptions in the Sessions index. One of the challenges here was to estimate how many pages the section would require — but without a complete set of descriptions at the outset.

 20-21  SPEAKERS   Similar to the Sessions index, I managed five pages of speaker bio updates. The main challenges were to use the layout space economically and to minimize text wrapping across columns.
