Subject: the Word From Michael Dooley: Margo Chase and Stefan Bucher
I've got a couple of guest speakers coming to my "Design History 2" class in the LAT Media Room at Art Center's Hillside campus, and everyone's welcome to join. And the first appearance is just a few days away.
Margo Chase was Twilight long before TV's "Twilight;" she gained her reputation as the entertainment industry's favorite go-to gal for Goth graphics, working in music (Madonna!), TV (Buffy!), and film (Dracula!). Her Chase Design Group has since expanded to identity development for international clients as diverse as Starbucks, Nike, and the Cartoon Network. She is also a recent recipient of an AIGA Fellows Award. Come hear Margo share valuable career tips for surviving and thriving in the design field.
Meanwhile, check out these short videos to see Margo discuss her career and to preview her studio's work.
And wait: there's more coming up. Stefan G. Bucher will be presenting to my class two weeks after Margo. At last year's national AIGA conference in Memphis, the general consensus was that, for sheer entertainment value alone, the Stefans Sagmeister and Bucher topped the list of featured speakers.
This Stefan is the founder of 344 Design, an author, and the illustrator responsible for the Daily Monster phenomenon that's recently invaded PBS's "Electric Company." He'll discuss how he's built his own practice while juggling this variety of creative pursuits.
So that's Margo Chase this coming Thursday, March 4th, and Stefan Bucher on Thursday, March 18th, both at 7 p.m. And admission and parking is free! So save both the dates!
