Talk: "The Hidden Talents of Everyday Things"
New York, NY
Kelli Anderson is an artist/designer and tinkerer who is always experimenting with new means of making images and experiences. She draws, photographs, cuts, prints, codes, and creates a variety of designed things for herself and others. From interactive paper to layered, experimental websites, everything begins and ends in her New York studio which houses a 1919 letterpress and an assortment of other benevolent contraptions. She also teaches art history at Pratt every summer.
Talk: "Don’t Make Design So Difficult."
For the past 14 years Jay Fletcher has been living & working in Charleston, South Carolina as a graphic designer, illustrator, and art director. In 2004, as a means of burning off unused creativity, a budding freelance career took root as a late-night side gig. Kegs of coffee were brewed, momentum built, and now J Fletcher Design has a stable of clients ranging from Nickelodeon to his niece, work featured in international industry publications, and shelves of recognition from some of the design world’s most prominent voices.
