The Futurist Panel: Where Digital Product Design and Book Publishing Converge

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As book publishing moves from the creation of physical goods to the delivery of electronic content, publishers need to think more like software designers and less like, well, publishers. In this wide-ranging session, leading minds in the fields of publishing and digital product design discuss and debate the future of publishing as a craft and the core strengths publishers need to develop to compete in the publishing landscape of tomorrow. This panel discussion will be followed by an interactive break-out session where attendees are encouraged to discuss their digital publishing ideas and challenges with our panelists.

Attendees will learn about:
+ Experience Design (XD) and why it's key to your digital efforts
+ Whole Business Perspectives
+ Digital productworkflows
+ Interative Design
