Tonight in Minneapolis the world renowned Walker Art Center will open Graphic Design: Now in Production a joint exhibition with the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York. Curated by design luminaries Andrew Blauvart and Ellen Lupton with help of specialists like Jeremy Leslie and Armin Vit.
Jeremy describes the exhibition well, “The exhibition is a large-scale (and rare) overview of the last ten years of graphic design. As the title suggests, it focuses on the way graphic designers have broadened their practice beyond client work to include self-production and self-publishing. ”
We’re privileged to be featured in the exhibition with other brilliant things such as Chris Doyle’s identity guidelines, Christophe Szpajdel The Dark Lord of Logos (who coincidently designed the RIG logo) some Daniel Eatock goodness and Peter Buchanon-Smith’s Best Made Felling Axes among many others.
The exhibition is at the Walker Arts Centre until 22 January and then will be at the Cooper-Hewitt 2 June until 3 September.
I’m off to ask the CEO for a plane ticket.
