Join us for a night of discussion and presentation by renowned graphic designer Lucille Tenazas.
Media Sandbox Lecture Series
Wednesday March 28, 2012
Communication Arts & Sciences Building
She is an exceptional graphic designer -- sensitive, intelligent, and elegant. At times, magnificently quirky.
Lucille is Henry Wolf professor at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, and a past president of AIGA, the professional association for design.
The presentation and discussion will seek to inculcate in students the concept of the
designer as "cultural nomad" -- a concept her own journey has made her uniquely qualified to address.
"I see the design process as a continuous
accumulation of experience so that one can adapt oneself to whatever context one is thrust into," she says. "At the base level, we respond to other people's problems. The nomad is able to move from one context to another, one discipline to another, one culture to another, and be seen not necessarily as a native, but as one of them -- so that trust is engendered, and that allows the designer to speak in her client's voice without sacrificing her own."
