Print designer in upstate New York since 2002.
Went to college in New York’s Hudson River Valley / BA from Bard College in 1990 / saved some money / moved to NYC / got a job at FPG International, (now Getty Images) / stayed 4 years
. . . moved upstate / picked some flowers / pressed some cider / slung some drinks / ended up right back where I started; Bard College.
I was incredibly lucky that Bard takes its design challenges seriously. There were no images arranged scrapbook style or screened back purple blocks of over-sized poorly thoughout type treatments like most colleges—they insisted on clean, modern, and above all, elegant design.
