February Meetup — National Geographic

Join us in February at National Geographic for what promises to be an informative evening.

As National Geographic celebrates 125 years of pioneering work, we will hear about how the magazine continues to reinvent itself for digital audiences, with everything from apps that showcase stunning photography to interactive graphics and maps to the overall brand billboard of the homepage.

A small group from National Geographic, led by Creative Director Bill Marr, will walk us through the thinking. And we will learn about how trying new technology has always been part of National Geographic's unique character.

Thanks to Kaitlin Yarnall, the magazine's Deputy Creative Director and ONADC friend, for organizing the program. It should be a lot of fun!


6 p.m. — Doors open

6-6:30 p.m. — Mingling and networking

6:30-7:30 p.m. — 10-minute presentations with the creative team, including Lisa Lytton (director, digital editions), Jody Sugrue (creative director, digital) and Dan Gilgoff (director, NG Daily news), led by Bill Marr

7:30-8:15 p.m. — Final networking and wrap-up

We hope you will come to National Geographic for this exceptional event. The $5 entry fee covers only you; additional guests need to register separately.

See you in February!

— Matt and Tiffany


Volunteer to work the door, photograph or blog the event by emailing Matt ([masked]). Volunteers receive complimentary entry even if the event sells out.

Have an idea for future ONADC topics, speakers and events? We are always looking for cool suggestions, as well as places to hold meetups. Let us know if you have thoughts about topics or if you want to host!


We hope you will consider joining ONA soon. It's a great organization!
