SNDBoston countdown: 8 days

This one is for the students!
If you're headed to SNDBoston, be sure to stop by the student session on Thursday at the Park Plaza. The free day of training starts at 11 a.m. on Oct. 11. The SND Foundation sponsors the special student day as part of its outreach efforts.

The day is for students only and it's all geared toward giving you the tools you need to get to the next level. Whether you need ideas on your school publication, your portfolio or the job hunt, we've assembled designers from print and online who'll give you hands-on, practical advice and inspiration. You'll kick yourself if you don't go.

Advice from a recent grad: Jared Novack, award-winning former designer of the Syracuse Daily Orange and interactive designer at the Houston Chronicle, shares strategies and practical tips on everything from building templates to picking the right software.

Explore type from the inside: You've seen his work, you've used his fonts, now the Font Bureau's David Berlow takes you deep inside typography. A master class from a master.

Build your brainstorming skills: Learn how to take a tricky concept or tough assignment and spin it around to unlock a creative solution. See examples of great pages done on tight budgets from sketch to completion.

Plus a chance for a summer at Poynter! Compete that Thursday for the chance to win one of three Summer Fellowships for Young Journalists offered by The Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, Fla. The six-week intensive program gathers the best young talent from around the world. You'll work with aspiring and accomplished journalists to refine your skills to become a better visual journalist. The fellowship includes tuition and housing, worth $3,000! More information and past projects @ poyntersummerfellows.org.
