It seems everything we design must catch eyes in nanoseconds, make sense to strangers and save the world. No wonder egocentric designers use beautiful form to express clever and easy truths. Deliberate design pursues another truth, through collaboration. I worked with photographers, printmakers, vendors, printers, patrons and random talent to design “Taking In.” Working together we obtained student work, funding, a jury, a gallery, a show, this catalog and a book release party. Ideas from our collective mind made our conversation about art into this book.
