Pentagram is thrilled to have several of our works featured in the major exhibition Graphic Design: Now in Production, currently on view at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Organized by Andrew Blauvelt of the Walker and Ellen Lupton of the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum (where the show travels next summer), Graphic Design: Now in Production looks at the growing reach of graphic design over the past decade—“expanding from a specialized profession to a widely deployed tool,” in the words of the curators—and the changing role of the designer to producer, author and entrepreneur. The show is the first major U.S. exhibition to focus on graphic design in 15 years, following Mixing Messages: Graphic Design in Contemporary Culture at the Cooper-Hewitt in 1996 and the Walker’s landmark exhibition Graphic Design in America: A Visual Language History in 1989.

Happy Halloween!
