Insights:Geoff McFetridge (L.A.)
on Graphic Culture
L.A.-based designer Geoff McFetridge (Champion Studio) is a leading figure in the contemporary realm of graphic culture, moving fluidly between the realms of art and design and the printed page and the moving image.
Featured in the film and exhibition, Beautiful Losers, McFetridge’s clever and engaging art has graced nearly every kind of surface imaginable—from limited-edition Nike sneakers and his own line of silkscreened wallpapers to laser-etched illustrations on toast for a music video by OK GO. His work has been shown around the world in cities such as London, Paris, Tokyo, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, and Amsterdam. McFetridge was featured in the Walker exhibition Graphic Design: Now in Production and his Insights lecture will also be celebrating a site-specific mural he is currently creating to be installed outside the Walker in February, 2013.
Directly following each lecture, meet the designer and chat with fellow design lovers at the Garden Café in the lobby.
