Ellen Lupton in Orlando

November 11

Join us Nov 11 as Ellen Lupton vents her rage about dumb quotes, bad kerning, free fonts, over-priced toasters, over-stuffed pillows, ill-fitting bras, adult orthodontia, and more, much more. Lupton is a curator, writer, designer, teacher, and world-class complainer who is obsessed with uncovering the design problems all around us. Today, anyone can be a designer-or a publisher, pundit, rock star, or filmmaker. Does that mean we're heading for a more vibrant and interesting world, or one where high quality and good taste are destined for a global meltdown?

Ellen Lupton is curator of contemporary design at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution in New York City and director of the Graphic Design MFA program at MICA in Baltimore. She is a 2007 recipient of the AIGA Gold Medal. A frequent lecturer around the U.S. and the world, Lupton will speak about design to anyone who will listen.
