Redesigning the News

Initially, Michael Cervieri, Founder of the Future Journalism Project and Co-Founder of ScribeLabs, was to deliver Redesigning the News.  Then, we hit a bump in the road, literally.  Before we knew it, we put together a panel of local news-worthy talents and redesigned "Redesigning the News".

Special thanks to our sponsors- VIM Interactive, BackForty, and SmartLogic for making this Refresh happen.

A panel of local news-worthy media specialists came together to discuss the future of redesigning the news. The panel consisted of Mary Nahorniak of USA TODAY, Olivia Hubert-Allen and Adam Marton of Baltimore Sun, Patrick Tucker of Futurist Magazine and Ben Kutil local designer and creator of Baltimore Brew
