Bookfest Speaker Series: Renee Stevens, AIGA Upstate New York
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In celebration on our Summer of BookFest, Book Arts is hosting a Speaker Series of experts in the book arts biz! Sponsored by Printing Industries Alliance.
Join us as Renée Stevens walks us through her process of writing, designing, and publishing her book, Powered by Design. Curious about the book publishing process, or interested in the concepts discussed in the book? Come with questions!
In Powered by Design, educator, designer, and public speaker Renee Stevens brings a truly up to date and thoughtful approach to an introduction to graphic design. The design industry has evolved rapidly over the past decade. Effective and successful designers no longer need to just “make things,” they need to be curious thinkers who understand how to solve problems that have a true impact on the world we live in and how to show the power of designing for social good.
Stevens created this book to be at home equally in academia and outside of the school setting. With a conversational and approachable tone, Stevens’ book is for anyone who wants to gain a more practical understanding of what graphic design is today, and the power and potential it has: from students to novice graphic designers to anyone who wants to build a solid foundation of design skills so that they can work more effectively with professional designers.
