Description

Join us for an evening of keen insights and inspiring observations by internationally acclaimed designer Michael Bierut, partner at Pentagram. A reception begins in the Krieger Lobby at 6:30pm; the talk starts at 7pm.

Bierut studied graphic design at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, graduating summa cum laude in 1980. Before joining Pentagram in 1990, he worked for 10 years at Vignelli Associates, ultimately as vice president of graphic design.

His clients at Pentagram have included The New York Times, Saks Fifth Avenue, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Harley-Davidson, the Museum of Arts and Design, the New York City Department of Transportation, the Robin Hood Foundation, Mohawk Paper Mills, New World Symphony, Princeton University, the New York Jets, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and MIT Media Lab.

He has won hundreds of design awards and his work is represented in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Montreal. He served as president of the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) from 1988 to 1990 and is president emeritus of AIGA National.
