Its a Tremendous Experience at IFRA Newspaper Design workshop

Robb Montgomery’s two - day workshop on Newspaper Design at Hyderabad was a tremendous experience . There were delegates from India , Sri Lanka , Bangladesh and Singapore. Out of 20 delegates, many of them were attending a Newspaper design workshop like this for the first time- theory plus practical . Robb thought us many new techniques which is useful for our daily work.

The exercise conducted in the workshop was excellent and wonderful. There were two exercise-
1. planning and layout for the page one
2. planning and layout for the centre spread.
After the exercise Robb pointed out the merits and demerits of the pages. It was very interactive. Both were very useful and helped me how to plan and co-ordinate my pages in advance

Having shown many examples and case studies , his lectures on redesign and basics of design was also very well received by the delegates.
Other main thing is that Robb was very open to discussions even after the training time. He solved many delegate’s problem on design which is not in program.
Thanks Robb
Thanks IFRA India for conducting such a good workshop

Robb and me: We were friends for almost three years.But we were meeting for the first time in Hyderabad
