Join us in this lecture with Graphic Design Assistant Professor Saskia Van Kampen, a graphic designer with experience in editorial design, wayfinding signage, corporate branding, consulting and illustration.
Her personal design projects focus on the intersection of design and craft, and involves a cross-pollination between various disciplines including painting, printmaking, typography and sewing. Presently she is using stitching to explore different techniques of disrupting design conventions, and to inform the practice-based approach of her teaching methodology.
