Last Minute: Scott Stowell at Parsons tonight!


Thursday 28 January 2010
Tishman Auditorium
66 West 12TH Street
New York, NY 10016

6:30PM Check-in
7:00-8:30PM Presentation

Presented by AIGA NY and Hosted by Parsons School of Art, Media, and Technology.

Since 1998, designer Scott Stowell has been doing business as Open–and as such has survived by staying small, specialized in not really specializing in anything in particular, and (as described in the Cooper-Hewitt’s DesignUSA show) embraced “an open notion of the term ‘office,’ inviting different participants to every project.”

As it turns out, everything is connected and everything is an opportunity–if you’re paying attention. Please join Scott for a new, never-before-seen talk full of new (and old) stories about new (and old) work from over ten years of making “design for people.” There may also be prizes and there will surely be distractions.

Scott is the proprietor of Open, an independent design studio that has made a lot of things, including the editorial design of Good magazine, short films for Google and Jazz at Lincoln Center, signage for the Yale University Art Gallery and the new AIGA membership cards. In 2008, Scott was the winner of the National Design Award for Communication Design.
