About this course:
The covers of the UCLA Extension course catalog have featured the works of several of the world’s best-known graphic designers, beginning in 1990 with Paul Rand and continuing today with luminaries in the design world. With his snow-capped orange for the Winter Quarter 1990 cover, Rand not only set the quality standard for the covers, but his participation also encouraged other noteworthy designers to follow his lead. Such legends as Saul Bass, Lou Danziger, Frank Gehry, Ivan Chermayoff, Eiko Ishioka, Henry Wolf, George Tscherney, and Milton Glaser are among the esteemed cohort of designers who have created covers. The collection has been shown in exhibitions and includes not just posters but also sculptures, interactive projects, and installations. Top designers consider the invitation to design the UCLA Extension catalog cover an honor they are unlikely to refuse. In this 60-minute seminar, join Visual Arts department director and curator of the series, Scott Hutchinson, and this quarter’s master cover designer to explore the inspiration for the current cover, the educational and “real world” experiences that have shaped the designer’s career, and a Q&A session.
