PNCA and OFFICE PDX Welcome Design Leaders
February 22, 2009
Pacific Northwest College of Art, in collaboration with “OFFICE PDX”:http://www.officepdx.com/events.php, welcomes Jerry French, founder of “French Paper”:http://www.mrfrench.com/, the only independently owned paper mill in the US, and internationally acclaimed designer Charles S. Anderson, founder of Minneapolis–based Charles S. Anderson (“CSA”:http://www.csadesign.com/) Design.
In 2006, they launched Pop Ink, a brand of licensed products produced in conjunction with French Paper Company, inspired by the highs and lows of art and print culture. The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session lead by Amara Holstein, contributing writer and editor for _Portland Spaces_, _Dwell_, and _Wallpaper_ magazine.
Pop Ink products have been featured in numerous publications including: _Dwell_, _The New York Times_, _ReadyMade_, and _Communication Arts_, among others. CSA’s approach to design is “a continuous evolution inspired by the highs and lows of art and print culture,” according to Anderson. Since founding CSA in 1989, Anderson has worked with clients such as Nike, Target, Coca-Cola, Levi’s and more.
