Q saumya, news designer with Dainik jagran,India
Its regarding the SND membership. Mostly the seminars and events etc. of SND were held in the US. So is it worth the money for an Indian designer to take SND membership ?
A. SajeevKumar T.K, Regional Director (Asia-South Pacific) SND 19
Last week SND appointed me as Regional Director with this in mind....to give more focus to India and the surrounding countries. Soon SND will be very active here.First is a news design conference in New Delhi in Jan 2o12 in association with WAN-IFRA. Well-known designers will attend the conference.
And this will become a regular affair.
More and more training camps will come up in India.So the membership will be very useful
