Pioneering transmedia designer April Greiman has pushed graphic design into new dimensions, from the built environment to augmented reality (AR). Greiman’s designs are among the first digital graphics ever made, and her innovative use of advanced digital technology has made her a leader in the design world. She actively challenges interdisciplinary boundaries, investigating the parallels and intersections between art and design in all aspects of her work.  In this talk, Greiman will speak about her career with Ellen Lupton, Senior Curator of Contemporary Design. An audience Q&A will follow.  .
