Oh, Mr Porter

The Editorial Design Organisation credits Mark Porter as being creative director of Conde Nast UK. The Guardian design department doesn’t know that (it thinks he’s their creative director) and the magazine gurus in Vogue House don’t know it. Meanwhile, Porter himself is away. Get along to the December EDO meeting to discover whether it’s truth, a publicity stunt or a literal…

Porter is down to debate the topic ‘The web needs magazines more than magazines need the web’ next year alongside Haymarket’s Simon Kanter. Kanter has a long history with new media. As long ago as 1993, he produced a CD-Rom holding a review of a Saab saloon for Haymarket’s What Car? and XYZ magazines.

Drat… Mark has responded – ‘Oops no idea how that happened … I’m Creative Director of Guardian News & Media, and I expect to be for some time!’

Bang goes that piece of gossip!
