The SNDDC’s two-day conference, “The Future of News Design,” was informative and inspiring. Although journalism is not my field, I have always interested in the news space. It was such an eye-opening experience to see how these news organizations including The Guardian, NPR, The New York Times, and The Quartz stepping up their digital game. Vox and Breaking News have embraced the digital space from the start; therefore, it was intriguing to see where they are heading in the future. Many problems they have solved could easily apply to higher education. I was so glad to be at the event and had a two-minute talk with one of my design heroes: Jason Santa Maria.
