Design Matters Live, Tonight with Alan Dye

marian's design!

Adobe and AIGA San Francisco are presenting a very special series—Design Matters Live: Life, Love and the Pursuit of Design. Joining me today, November 8th, for our final show of the season, is my dear friend Alan Dye.

Alan Dye joined Apple as the Creative Director in November of 2006. Prior to this position, Alan managed the overall brand aesthetic for award-winning lifestyle brands kate spade and JACK SPADE, and he was a Design Director and Partner at Ogilvy and Mather’s Brand Integration Group where he worked with Motorola, Miller Brewing company, Levi’s, and Times Square, NYC. Prior to joining Ogilvy, Dye spent four years at Landor Associate’s New York office doing brand identity work for clients including Delta Airlines, Pepsi Cola, and MADD. He has also done independent design work for the National Basketball Association, Madstone Films, Balmori Associates, and the PUSH design conference. Alan’s work has been recognized by several design shows and magazines, including Communications Arts, Print, I.D., AIGA, and Graphis. Last year, he spoke at the AIGA New York chapter “Fresh Dialogue” event, and he was selected by Print Magazine as one of their New Visual Artist’s in the annual “20 Under 30” issue.
