The Department of Art and Design and CECA welcome Bryony Gomez-Palacio for a visiting artist lecture

The Department of Art and Design, with support from The Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts is pleased to welcome visionary graphic designer, Bryony Gomez-Palacio, to the campus of Austin Peay State University for a visiting artist lecture. Palacio is a powerful and influential voice in the field of graphic design, and her talk will continue a very exciting 2016-2017 season of the Department of Art and Design’s Visiting Artist Speaker Series.

Born and raised in Mexico City, Bryony Gomez-Palacio is a graphic designer and writer now living in Austin, Texas. She is the co-founder of UnderConsideration – a graphic design firm and publishing enterprises all rolled into one – where she manages the behind-the-scenes of the online network compromised of Brand New, FPO, Quipsologies, and The Art of the Menu. She is also co-founder and host of the Brand New Conference, and it’s European counter-part the Brand Nieuwe Conference. Brand New chronicles and provides opinions on corporate and brand identity work, covers redesigns and new designs of notable products, companies, services, and organizations across all industries and locations. She is also the co-founder of the Austin Initiative for Graphic Awesomeness lecture series, where design and its production are always in question.

Palacio has co-authored five books with her husband and partner, Armin Vit—their most popular titles being Graphic Design, Referenced, the self-published Flaunt, and the made-to-order children’s book The Adventures of You and I. Bryony lives in Austin, TX, with her husband, two girls, two dogs, and a bearded dragon.

The lecture will take place Thursday, April 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the University Center Room 303. With support from the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, all Art and Design events are free and open to the public.
