Visiting Artist at Old Dominion University

Kenneth Fitzgerald's Student Posters
Posters designed by Haruka Takemoto

I will be the visiting artist at Old Dominion University on Thursday, March 20, and will be presenting a lecture titled "Why We Brand, Why We Buy" at 7:00pm in the Diehn Fine & Performing Arts Center, room 136. Sponsored by the ODU Art Department's Visiting Artists Program, the event is free and open to the public.

The posters above are examples from Kenneth Fitzgerald's final class project from his students at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. The assignment for the students was to listen to the Design Matters show of their choice and to design a series of three posters for each of the designers interviewed.

The complete series of posters from 2006 and 2007 are here.

Thank you to all the students for doing such inspiring work and for listening to the shows! I am looking forward to meeting you!
