Ellen Lupton is a design aficionado and author to many trend setting books about design. She is large influence on the creative community and by visiting us in Denver, she will prove to do just that. It’s argued that Lupton and her husband and co-author, Abbott Miller, are to graphic design what Charles and Ray Eames were to industrial design - except that what Lupton and Miller accomplish as a team is matched, if not surpassed, by what they accomplish as individuals.
Lupton is a curator of contemporary design at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York City and Director of the Graphic Design MFA program at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore. As an AIGA Gold Medalist, Lupton is greatly appreciated for the fact that she has helped shape our definition of modern day design. Check out a few of her books at elupton.com.
