The Colophon2009 festival in Luxembourg

CR is bringing a small slice of this year’s Colophon2009 conference to London next month as part of our Portfolios event. Four independent magazine makers will show their work and share their experiences of self-publishing.

Confirmed speakers for the session, which will also celebrate publication of the book We Make Magazines (cover below), are Danny Miller from Little White Lies and Karen Lubbock from Karen magazine. Others TBC.

The session will be chaired by Jeremy Leslie (John Brown, magCulture) and will take place from 3pm to 5pm on June 10 at Centrall Hall Westminster, London SW1.

Tickets are £10, free to members of EDO. You can book now at the Portfolios website here

Portfolios is a new event for art directors, designers and anyone who commissions images. It will give you the chance to view thousands of photo­graphers’ and illustrators’ work, all under one roof.

The UK’s top agents and creative retouchers will be there, giving everyone who attends the chance to see the work of the best imagemakers around as well as to plan your next shoot. Entry is free: you can either pre-register at the show’s website, portfolioshow.co.uk, or just turn up on the day.

In addition to the Colophon event, we also have a talk from illustrator James Jarvis and an evening in tribute to the late great creative director Paul Arden. Whether it was standing silent as a cellist played next to him, inviting a naked man on stage to demonstrate that we are all a blank canvas or destroying a fountain pen with a sword, Arden’s lectures were anything but conventional. We hope to channel some of that iconoclastic spirit in an evening put together with the help of former colleagues such as Graham Fink, Alexandra Taylor and Nick Sutherland-Dodd. As well as rare footage of the man himself and his work, the session will feature surprises aplenty. One not to be missed. Tickets to the Portfolios seminars cost just £10 each (there will be a limited number of reduced price tickets available for students). Book them here.
