Print magazine 75th Anniversary

It was an honor to be invited by Debbie Millman to contribute to the 75th anniversary edition of Print magazine, among "75 of the best creatives working today".

75 creatives, among them Erik Spiekermann, Alexander Isley, Milton Glaser, Seymour Chwast, Maira Kalman, Louise Fili, Paula Scher, etc. offered their interpretations of the Print masthead, reflections on the printed form, spins on Print’s history, and everything in between, revealing an insight into the creators’ mind and the medium at large.

I was trying to show the shrinking importance of printed media. Print is dying, it is on its back, and new media is taking over.

Festival of Tolerance

I was very happy to again be a part of the 9th Festival of Tolerance - Jewish Film Festival Zagreb, and give a lecture on Saturday, April 18th, on Symbols of Hate.
Apart from the high school students, I was very pleased that the lecture was attended by the members of the Police Academy, who, along with the political circles, are the most important group I wish to reach, and who are able to control the violence.
Last but not least, I am very pleased the representatives of the football clubs also attended the lecture!
