2013 Keynote: James Victore

The Department of Art is delighted to announce that James Victore will be this year's Clarvit Design Lecture Series keynote. 

To say that James Victore is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill designer is akin to saying that the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao is no ordinary architectural structure. James Victore is a self-taught, independent artist, graphic designer, design educator and speaker. His work is infused with passion, conviction, and a no-holds-barred attitude. He designs on his own terms and eschews technological gadgetry and clients when appropriate. In short, he is hell-bent on world domination. 

Victore’s clients include Moet & Chandon, Aveda, Bobbi Brown cosmetics, Esquire, TIME and The New York Times. HIs work has been Emmy nominations and Gold and Silver Medals from the New York Art Director’s Club. His posters have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and are in the permanent collections of the Palais du Louvre, Paris, the Library of Congress, Washington, DC, the Design Museum in Zurich and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. 

Victore lectures and teaches regularly around the globe and he is a professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His book Victore or, Who Died and Made You Boss? was released by Abrams in 2010.

James Victore's lecture will be 6 p.m., Thursday, February 28 in the Art-Sociology Building, room 2203.
