COLORS Magazine Lands in China

Following an agreement with Hong Kong publisher, Systems Design, COLORS Magazine will launch a Chinese edition of the publication that “talks about the rest of the world”.

From 20-25 May, Patrick Waterhouse and Enrico Bossan, respectively creative and editorial directors of COLORS, will be in Shanghai and Beijing to promote the initiative. A series of conferences have been organised “to present to the young people of China the story of a magazine that, for the past twenty years, has been portraying aspects of the world not usually in the spotlight”.

The first event will be held in Shanghai on 20 May, with a talk from Patrick Waterhouse at TEDxShanghai 2012. It will take place at Shanghai Concert Hall from 9:00am-7:00pm. Subsequent COLORS events:
