Our Pub(lications) Crawl is an annual day-long event where you'll get to tour the offices of two fantastic magazines and/or design firms for an in-depth look at the way things really work. Our tour hosts are all ready to give you behind-the-scenes access, so come armed with your curiosity and questions, and prepare yourself for a unique tour of great magazine-making.

Space is limited, so RSVP to reserve your spot now. All tours are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis ... so the earlier you register, the better chance you have of getting your top choice of tours.

WANNA COME?

Pick which tours you'd most prefer to go on and choose your ticket ... you'll be asked for your tour choices in the registration forms. Please be aware that tours are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis, so the earlier you register, the more likely you will get your top choice of tours. But even if you don't get your first choice, don't worry ... ALL the tours are awesome, trust us!!

THE TOURS:

TOUR A: VICE and Essence

TOUR BCode & Theory and Vanity Fair

TOUR C: Cosmopolitan and Pentagram

TOUR D: GQ and WSJ. Magazine

 

BRING WITH YOU:
a government-issued photo I.D. for access to office buildings
money for lunch or bring your own lunch; also make sure you eat breakfast BEFORE you arrive in the morning
a MetroCard or money for subway travel ... we try to walk as much as we can, but some subway travel will be required
a notebook for notes and a bag since you'll be getting handouts and magazines
umbrella/raingear and comfortable shoes since we'll be walking to the different offices
• office-appropriate clothing. You definitely don't have to wear a suit or get too fancy -- you will be walking a lot, after all -- but just remember you WILL be in various professional settings and you may be meeting people who one day will interview you, so dress with that in mind.

Leave the résumés and portfolios at home ... we'll have a Portfolio Review and Workshop later in the year and you'll have the chance to review it with our panel of professionals at that time.


THE FINE PRINT
Space is limited so RSVP asap! Your tour preferences are just that; in other words, they are not guaranteed. Tours are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis ... so the earlier you RSVP, the better chance you have of getting your top choice. This also means that if you are part of a large group registering, you may not all get assigned the same tour. Tour assignments will be given to you the morning of the event.

Organizer

The Society of Publication Designers (SPD)

First and foremost, SPD is a membership organization dedicated to promoting and encouraging excellence in editorial design across all print and digital platforms.

Our members are art directors, designers, photo editors, photographers, illustrators and information graphics professionals, editors and students. Since drafting its charter in 1965, SPD remains the only organization specifically addressing the visual concerns of print and digital editorial professionals, whether that be journalism, storytelling, service or more. Editorial design plays a crucial role in shaping and documenting our common history; as such, the efforts of the Society serve to educate and enlighten our members, their fans, and the general public about the importance of magazines.

We love magazines and the people who make them, however they’re printed, called-up on your screen, or ported on your iPad.
