The digital publishing world has been growing steadily for several years. The arrival of tablets and smartphones has accelerated developments, and today it is impossible to imagine a media landscape without e-books, newspaper applications, and digital magazines. The PublishingLab is a "hybrid publisher" working at the inter-sectional of publishing and digital technology, both print and digital. The entire publishing chain is influenced by these developments: technology changes the creative, production, distribution, marketing and end-use of publications. The PublishingLab is studying the impact this will have on the industry as a whole. PublishingLab activities are aimed at the following three groups: 1. makers (authors, designers) 2. intermediaries (publishers) 3. end users (readers / students). The PublishingLab conducts applied research by performing innovative experiments in the (digital) publishing field. This can be a research on the impact of developments across the industry conducting small experiments in the EPUB3 domain, such as research / work on user interfaces for collaborative online publishing environments, research / work on the transport of hybrid print concepts and workflows to a non-expert audience or simply look for interesting design issues to tackle. www.publishinglab.nl
During my academic exchange in Colombia, I participated in the organization of the event "the book fair of Bogotá" as a digital designer consultant for the embassy of the Netherlands in Colombia, the latter being the guest country of honor. This event recorded more than 70,000 visits and lasted 20 days. My mission was to make the link between the embassy and the cultural magazine "Arcadia" for the realization of a printed separatta and in parallel, I was in charge of ensuring the communication between the designer Irma Boom and the developers for the creation of a website dedicated to architecture, design and Dutch literature. In addition, besides the event, I was in charge of the design and the strategy of the social networks of the embassy (Facebook, Twitter, Mailchimp, Instagram, Typeform). Currently, I take care of the digital design for the ambassade, which consists of 1. The declination of the site made by Irma Boom to a Blog to increase the digital presence of the Embassy in all cultural events in Colombia. 2. The Design of Infographics on human rights and LGBTI equality as well as cultural and economic links between Colombia and Holland. 3.Production of print media for magazines and ban- nières. 4.Creation of newsletter and forms with Typeform and Mailchimp.
