Design Lecture Series: David Reinfurt

Wednesday, February 19, 10:00am–1:00pm
CSB 218C

An independent graphic designer in New York City, David Reinfurt introduced the study of graphic design at Princeton University in 2010. In late September 2019, Inventory Press and D.A.P. published a book based on his teaching, A New Program for Graphic Design, a do-it-yourself textbook that synthesizes the pragmatic with the experimental and builds on mid- to late-twentieth-century pedagogical models to convey advanced principles of contemporary design, rooted in three courses (Typography, Gestalt, and Interface).

As a co-founder of O-R-GDexter Sinister, and The Serving Library, Reinfurt has developed several models that have reimagined graphic design and publishing in the twenty-first century. He was 2016–17 Mark Hampton Rome Prize Fellow in Design at the American Academy in Rome and is the co-author of Muriel Cooper (MIT Press, 2017).
