Morcos Key brings together two incredible perspectives—designers Jon Key and Wael Morcos—and represents a model for how a contemporary design studio can create vital work that gives visibility to underrepresented communities. The studio works with a variety of arts and cultural institutions, nonprofits, and companies in both North America and the Middle East, providing services as varied as brand strategy, Latin and Arabic type design, book design, and wayfinding, to name a few. Their clients include Nike, the Sharjah Triennial, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, among others. In 2021, Morcos Key received the Black Design Visionaries Impact Grant, awarded by the Brooklyn Museum and Instagram to design businesses that offer “experimental expressions of Black culture and have a powerful vision for the future.
Copresented by the Walker Art Center and AIGA Minnesota.
This event will be held on Zoom; direct link to Zoom event will be available here on March 8 at 6:30 pm.
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 and dive into the thinking behind the work. Past lectures are archived on the Walker Art Center YouTube channel.
