Graphic Design: Now in Production

Basic Chemistry


Years ago, I was out sick the week that my fellow high school students studied the periodic table.  I’ve always blamed missing that foundational moment of scientific education for my very poor mastery of some basic chemistry.  But there are certain concepts that I have had the opportunity to learn through personal experience.  Every day when I try to make salad dressing, I am confronted with one of them—oil and water just won’t mix.

Every summer, hundreds of thousands of visitors travel by ferry to Governors Island, a former Coast Guard outpost that has become one of New York City’s most popular public parks. In summer 2012, Cooper-Hewitt was proud to host our exhibition, Graphic Design: Now In Productio​n, on Governors Island, and I was proud to be among the organizing curators.

Graphic Design- The Final Hours


During the final weekend of the exhibition "Graphic Design—Now In Production" on Governors Island, come talk with some of the field's leading practitioners about life, death, and visual communications. Hear about how new and old media are changing how designers work; commiserate on the loss of some of the world's greatest logotypes; and celebrate the birth of new design methods and talents.
