Event Details

Gail Anderson

Change is Good???

Making a change in any part of your life sounds like a good idea, but is actually pretty scary stuff. Come listen to a designer who’s trying to shake things up a little—while clinging desperately to the familiar. Take a peek at Gail Anderson’s sources of inspiration and recent work, including wonderful projects from her students at The School of Visual Arts. It’s an evening of honest discussion about the very slow process of reinvention (and
cool type).

Gail Anderson is a New York-based designer, writer, and educator. From 2002 through 2010, she served as Creative Director of Design at SpotCo, creating artwork for Broadway and institutional theater. From 1987 to early 2002, she worked at Rolling Stone magazine, serving as designer, deputy art director, and finally, as the magazine’s senior art director. Anderson is co-author, with Steven Heller, of the upcoming New Modernist Type, as well as New Ornamental Type, New Vintage Type, and several other design and illustration books. She is a contributor to Imprint  and Uppercase magazine. Anderson teaches in the School of Visual Arts MFA, undergraduate, and high school design programs, and is the recipient of the 2008 Lifetime Achievement Medal from the AIGA.
