Pentagram, the international design consultancy, is known as an interdisciplinary powerhouse with clients that include Microsoft, Saks Fifth Avenue, Swatch, and Harley-Davidson. At the same time, many of the firm’s partners share a passion for that most intimate and traditional creative activity: book design.
In a three-hour session, Pentagram partners Michael Bierut, Abbott Miller, Emily Oberman, Eddie Opara, Paula Scher, and DJ Stout will each talk about the joys and challenges of designing books on science, celebrity, information overload, photography, murder, and water conservation. The morning will include detailed case histories and special guests, including Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris, who will talk about working with Pentagram on the creation of his new book, A Wilderness of Error.
Program sponsored by Design Observer Group.
Following the program, audience members will be invited to specially designated areas in the Exhibition Hall for book signings and informal conversation with the speakers.
