Graphic: 500 Designs that Matter

A few days ago I got aware of the book Graphic: 500 Designs that Matter published some time ago by Phaidon. I was extremely pleased and humbled that my design of New York Times Op-Ed pages from 1992 made the cut in 500 Designs that Matter.

Posterfest in Budapest, Hungary

The 2nd Posterfest in Budapest, Hungary just announced the posters accepted for this year's show.
I am quite pleased that three of my posters were accepted, but I am even more pleased that I see (although purely alphabetical) my posters are almost touching shoulders with my friend Milton Glaser! On top of that, a couple of posters created for my Tolerance Poster Show also made the competition.

Thank you to Posterfest for choosing to display my work.

"Design of Dissent" in The Milton Glaser Archives

On October 10th 2018, School of Visual Arts posted a feature on "Design of Dissent", in the Milton Glaser Design Study Center and Archives: a collection of works with the intention of archival in academic context. I have written "Design of Dissent" with Milton Glaser, and I am happy to have donated over 300 pieces of artwork for the future study and understanding of political design that continues to be relevant regardless of era.

"The Milton Glaser Design Study Center and Archives and the SVA Archives, the two archival collections housed within the SVA Libraryhave recently launched their new website, accessible at both glaserarchives.org and svaarchives.org. Visitors can now learn more about and view selections from both archives' collections, schedule appointments to visit the archives in person, and more."

"From a design perspective, they're fascinating—a global view of what’s going on," says Beth Kleber, head archivist for both SVA and the Glaser Archives.

New Book, Graphic Style: From Victorian to Hipster

In the new Steven Heller and Seymour Chwast book, Graphic Style From Victorian to Hipster 4th Edition, I am honored to have my work represented in 3 different sections (Kinetic, Political, and Abstract Realism). 

With more than 700 illustrations, it is the only wide-ranging history of graphic design to be completely visual, and this new edition has been brought up to date with a new section that encompasses trends from the last decade.
