Design within reach
In 1959, Richard Coyne and Bob Blanchard published the first issue of Communication Arts magazine, a trade journal for the visual-communications industry. Within six months, the magazine’s paid circulation grew to 10,000. Today, the publication is the leading visual-culture magazine, showcasing the top work in graphic design, advertising, illustration, photography and interactive design. This Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., the Art Directors and Artists Club (ADAC) will host a lecture with Patrick Coyne, the publication’s editor and designer. During the lecture, which is titled “Graphic Design Today: Avoiding the Mullet,” Coyne will focus on a selection of award-winning design and advertising projects. “Creatives” will learn about the magazine’s annual competitions and how creatives are chosen to be profiled. Tickets for the event are a mere $10 for general admission and $5 for students. The lecture will be held at the Sierra 2 Center, located at 2791 24th Street.
