FB&SND;@ONA Meetup

Font Bureau sponsors a meetup for SND members at the 2011 ONA conference in Boston.

Conferences are a great opportunity to mix and mingle, so while you’re at the ONA11 Boston Conference, meet some of your colleagues from the Society for News Design for some food, drinks and visually stimulating conversation.

We’ll meet at the Back Bay Social Club at 867 Boylston Street. The private party runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, but you’re welcome to stay and enjoy the bar’s historic charm afterward.

This meetup is sponsored by Boston’s own Font Bureau, one of the world’s premier type houses and creator of Webtype, Font Bureau’s high-end Web fonts for online typography. You’ll have the chance to meet some of Font Bureau’s most creative minds, including Sam Berlow and Dyana Weissman.

The meetup will benefit the SND Foundation, the society’s nonprofit education and research effort. The SND Foundation provides training grants for out-of-work visual journalists, university-level scholarships, student travel grants, student internships and outreach to minority journalists.

RSVP for your $15 donation ($20 at the door), and you will receive two drink tickets and a smorgasbord of food including oysters, a selection of meats, cheese platters and crudités.

Last year’s SND@ONA Meetup was one of the highlights of the ONA Conference in Washington, D.C. You won’t want to miss it this year.

Space is limited. Reserve your spot today!
