March Meeting: Dirt Cheap Design

Creative tips for editors and art directors with limited art budgets

Finally, there's a subject both Editors and Art Directors can agree upon. We're all tired of trying to make our magazines look interesting and inviting to our readers on a virtually nonexistent art budget. In the same boat?

Well, since it's not likely your budget is going to increase significantly any time soon, editors and designers need to put their heads together to come up with creative solutions to this problem. It's not just pretty pictures and commissioned art ... well-chosen (and cheap) devices like pull
quotes, sidebars, photo cutlines, etc. can make your publication more inviting at little or no cost.

The Kansas City chapter of the ASBPE invites you to attend our March 7 meeting at Hayward's Barbeque restaurant in Overland Park (College & Antioch). We'll share the keys for editors and art directors to develop well-designed magazines even on little or nonexistent art budgets.

Who should attend: anyone on your editorial or design staff who is interested in learning (and sharing) ways we can all make our magazines better.

Date: Wednesday, March 7, from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Location: Private room at Hayward's (11051 Antioch St. in Overland Park)

Cost: $20 for members, $25 for non-members

RSVP: To reserve your spot for the luncheon, e-mail or call Bill King a 913-338-1503, by Monday, March 5.
