For years, New York Times Magazine has set a high bar for sophisticated editorial design, bringing together world class writing with daring typographic systems and captivating art direction.

The publication channels design styles associated with much more experimental outlets, staying within the larger New York Times brand.

Gail Bichler has worked for the Times in many roles: as a designer, an art director, and now currently as the magazine’s design director, leading a team of talented designers and typographers, while collaborating with some of the world’s best creatives.

About the Insights Lecture Series

Insights is a design lecture series for progressive creatives. A unique collaboration between the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota, the series embraces the unexpected to present diverse, exploratory, and contemporary lecturers.

Featuring perspectives from around the world, Insights gives voice to adventurous design thinkers and makers. These designers often pose challenges and push the edges of their profession, in turn inspiring us to identify new perspectives in our own work.

For over three decades, the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota have co-presented the Insights Design Lecture Series and brought the world’s most adventurous design thinkers and makers to the Twin Cities.

Redefine your understanding of graphic design, dive into the thinking behind the work, then hang out after the lectures to meet the lecturers, grab a drink, and chat with your fellow design lovers.

Past lectures are archived on the Walker Art Center YouTube channel.
