George McCalman: Design is Political+ Add to calendar
Thu, Oct 10 2019,
Timken Lecture Hall | 1111 Eighth Street, San Francisco, CA 94107
Part of event series: Design Lecture Series
George McCalman discusses how his career crosses conventional boundaries between Graphic Design, Drawing, and Personal Narrative. George’s work is a dynamic response to the current state of Design and World Politics, flowing easily from richly observed illustrated portraits to photographs that embrace the Bay Area Community in all states of unity and friction.
Raised in Brooklyn, Creative Director George McCalman received his BFA in philosophy at St. Johns in Queens, NY, which informs his design principles to this day. He credits his Caribbean background for his unique ability to both embrace and rebel against traditional modes of design, enabling a brand to simultaneously integrate and stand out in its industry. Serving primarily art, lifestyle, and food clients, MCCALMAN.CO creates a classic, long-lasting brand that continues to define its clients as they evolve.
Event schedule: 6 pm Lecture, 7 pm Reception
