Politicians, journalists and pundits use language. Graphic designers use visual language. Drawing on two realms, designers unite visual and verbal content in compelling communication. In a divisive era, when words alone have not been enough, can the power of design help unite citizens on the issues? Join us for "Design and Political Communication," a panel discussion and reception Wednesday, October 24 at 6:00pm, 22 McNeal Hall.
Panelists will include:
- David Brauer, MinnPost local media reporter
- Daniel Jasper, College of Design associate professor of graphic design
- Steven McCarthy, College of Design professor of graphic design
The panel will be moderated by Trevor Miller, College of Design director of external relations and former senior aide and political & communications director for the re-election campaign of Senator Russ Feingold, D-Wisc.
The Goldstein Museum of Design exhibition "We the Designers: Reframing Political Issues in the Age of Obama" will be open in 241 McNeal until 6:30pm.
