Can the Power of Design Help Unite Citizens?


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:

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.
