David Reinfurt—co-founder of Dexter Sinister and The Serving Library and co-author of the monograph Muriel Cooper—will present a slideshow lecture on A *NEW* PROGRAM FOR GRAPHIC DESIGN (2019), his “do-it-yourself textbook that synthesizes the pragmatic with the experimental and builds on mid- to late-20th-century pedagogical models to convey advanced principles of contemporary design.”
Reinfurt’s new book provides… in-depth access to a historical analysis, exquisite close-focus portraits of multi-talented creative makers past and present, alongside his own research and examples of his class assignments. This intelligent book contains new insights regarding graphic design history, thought, and practice… [and] is a reminder of Walt Whitman’s call for “a force infusion of intellect” to confront the future. — Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, director, Yale University Graduate Program in Graphic Design
