Visiting Artist Lecture by Bill Gardner (Graphic Design)

The Kansas State University Department of Art will present a lecture by visiting designer Bill Gardner at 1 pm on Thursday, February 21, 2019 in the Mark A. Chapman Gallery, Willard Hall. Admission is free and open to the public.

As the owner and president of Gardner Design, Bill Gardner has produced effective and award-winning results for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to one-man shops. He understands the nuances of brand practicalities better than anyone in the business and leads his team to first consider the business that the design is supporting.

As the founder of LogoLounge.com – the international, searchable compendium of logos – Bill authored the affiliated bestselling LogoLounge book series, volumes 1-10, and is the author of the annual LogoLounge Logo Trend Report. 2013 marked the release of the highly anticipated Logo Creed, a foundation textbook for students, educators and professionals alike.

In 2014, Bill became an AIGA Fellow Award recipient for his contributions to the local, national and international creative community. Bill also judges design competitions and speaks nationally and internationally on identity trends and logo development. In his spare time, he serves on several community boards and has completed a six-year term as the Territorial Vice President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. 

This event is presented and funded by KSU SGA Fine Arts Fee.  

This event is a part of the Kansas State University Department of Art Visiting Artists Series for the 2018-2019 Season.
