Event description

Description

Meet MacEwan University's Visiting Artist in Design, Abbott Miler who will demonstrate how his work is connected to the fundamental stickiness at the root of graphic design. Miller will explore how graphic design is a remarkable process that bonds together words and images across media, time, and space. This presentation looks at graphic design as a kind of fluid medium that provides connections among increasingly diverse and fragmented experiences.

Miller is knowledgeable in the areas of design history, brand identity, and exhibitions and environmental graphics. He will speak about the role of designer as both an author, intermediary, and collaborator. Miller will share his work across various media, with a focus on museums, exhibitions, and performance-oriented projects.

Miller studied design at the Cooper Union School of Art in New York. In 1989 he founded the multidisciplinary studio Design/Writing/Research where, in collaboration with Ellen Lupton, he pioneered the concept of “designer as author.” He joined Pentagram’s New York office as a partner in June 1999. At Pentagram he leads a team designing identities, books, magazines, exhibitions, environmental graphics, and digital projects. He is known for his focus on art, architecture, design, and performance.

Miller has received numerous design honors, including the AIGA Medal, the professions' highest recognition. He is currently the Frank Stanton Chair in Design at the Cooper Union in New York City, and a Visiting Critic at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in Baltimore. His book, Abbott Miller: Design and Content was published in 2014.
