Graphic design professor Steven McCarthy has been selected to present his paper "Designer as Author Activist: A Model for Engagement" at the Design Research Society's biennial conference in Bangkok, Thailand this July. The Design Research Society is the longest established multi-disciplinary worldwide learned society for the design research community. Professor McCarthy has taught at the College of Design since 1998, and attended an international design-related conference every year since 2001.
He recently signed a contract with BIS Publishing to write a forth-coming book about design authorship. Steven's graphic design work has been published in Graphis Poster, the American Institute of Graphic Arts annual, HOW, Page and in Provocative Graphics: The Power of the Unexpected in Graphic Design, among others. His creative work has been in over ninety juried and invitational exhibitions.
This fall, a digital video and poster (left) by Professor McCarthy included in the national invitational exhibit We The Designers will be shown in the Goldstein Museum of Design. Associate professor of graphic design Daniel Jasper also has work in the exhibit.
