Our design involves the purposeful association of words and pictures that tell stories and create meaning and context.

As designers we are dazzled by new technologies, new thinking, and new trends. We also appreciate fine craftsmanship. As we experiment with new technologies, we continue to bring our craftsmanship into each form. Our goals are to make learning and working fun, to share our well honed aesthetics with the world around us, and to leave a legacy of beauty and successful communication.

We welcome collaboration.

Former student Olga Vladova created this video in my intermediate design course at SVA. The assignment was to create a typography-based narrative in motion. Olga developed a story about a new office romance. We borrowed a projector, projected her video in a classroom, and filmed it. It hit a corner and two walls, which made an interesting bend in the typography. Olga did a great job with the entire project including the voice over.

I created this hand made book entitled UHDR vs Plaintiff to discuss the problems with "canon" as it applies to contemporary life. While well meaning, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights leaves out persons and groups that fall outside of the authors' sphere.

STUDENT WORK

My goal is to help each student better understand their own aims and projects, to develop and realize themselves, professionally, personally, intellectually, and creatively. It is important to me that each student reach the goal of discovering their unique visual voice in my courses–a voice that will help them create substantial design careers while simultaneously continuing to grow as designers, artists, and people.
