Designer (Advertised) Jeans


While recent advertising has been overwhelmingly digital, the contemporary graphic designer and former National Design Award winner, Stefan Sagmeister, relishes the opportunity to use his considerable graphic talent and imagination to create posters the traditional way, through photo offset lithography. These posters are deliberately human and personal, in response to the “cold” modernist design of some of his colleagues. In general, Sagmeister searches for ideas that elicit sensual or emotional responses from the viewer.

Packaging the New: Design and the American Consumer, 1925-1975


More than 200 objects including drawings, products, packaging, and advertising trace the history of "the new.” Works by industrial designers Donald Deskey, Walter Dorwin Teague, Raymond Loewy, and Henry Dreyfuss are on display, as well as a recreation of a 1928 Saks Fifth Avenue window, a 1950s supermarket, and a 1960s Formica kitchen. A “Hall of Obsolescence” features a series of toasters that consumers purchased and re-purchased annually, despite only minor, superficial style "improvements."
