Editorial Design 2.0: Cat Lovers Welcome

We usually leave the feline angle to our bookish brother blog, Galleycat, but we had to call your attention to the recent New York Times Style piece on how “more men are unabashedly embracing their love of cats.” Writer Abby Ellin leads with exhibit A: Time Out New York creative director Adam Fulrath and Parappa, his shorthaired mixed-breed named (we gotta believe) for the famed canine rapper. Although we’re not sure if Parappa is available, Fulrath will be among the panelists at mediabistro.com’s Editorial Design 2.0 event on Wednesday. Moderated by Design Matters maven Debbie Millman (meow!), the panel will explore the changing media landscape and innovative ways to design for a world in which readers have become users. Other confirmed panelists include I.D. editor-in-chief Julie Lasky, Chris Dixon of New York magazine, and Good magazine creative director Casey Caplowe. Get the full scoop and register here, kitty, kitty.
