The annual Design Week for the MFA Graphic Design program at Otis College of Art and Design will launch with a public Design Fair on July 9, 2017, from 12-6pm. The fair will feature presentations by visiting international designers, a book fair, and more.
Visiting Designers and Artists:
Design Week is a series of workshops that pair incoming and current Otis College MFA students with internationally recognized visiting designers who exemplify alternative practices. In teams, the students and designers partner with Los Angeles-based community organizations, offering solutions to their real-world design needs.
The 2017 workshops will be lead by internationally recognized designers Luna Maurer of Moniker, James McKinnon along with Santiago Piedrafita, and design studio Antlant from Copenhagen. The public is invited to the final critique on July 14, from 4-6pm.
The new Designer-in-Residence program will launch at the Design Fair and overlap with Design Week, as nine studios will relocate and work at Otis College with a focus on self-generated projects, taking advantage of the campus facilities and culture, and engaging the MFA students. The public is invited to a studio walk-through and reception for the Designer-in-Residence program on July 21, 6-7:30pm.
