The Alaska Design Forum will host graphic designer James Victore next week as part of their UN/COMMON series of lectures. The lecture begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10, in the Back Room at the Silverbow.
The New York based artist's designs are represented in the permanent collection of the Louvre and The Library of Congress, and he has won awards from many major national and international design competitions, including an Emmy award for television animation.
His clients include Moet & Chandon, Aveda, Apple, Yohji Yamamoto, Yamaha, The New York Times and the School of Visual Arts.
Victoire teaches graphic design at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and is a founder of the annual Share, Victore, Wilker Graphic Design Workshop. Of his work, Victore says, "the fact that I don't make any distinction between beautiful and ugly always keeps me pushing to get somewhere new and surprise myself."
Admission to the lecture is $10 general and $5 for student.
