Kenyon College Philosophy Department
As my advisor in the Philosophy Department at Kenyon,
Professor Andy Pessin was also well aware of my interest
in design. So when the Department needed posters designed
for the two speeches to be presented in its lecture series,
he called me into his office and presented me with the job.
In both cases, the department needed something straightforward,
elegant and economical.
The first lecture, Jonathan Maskit's On What There
Is and What Is To Be Done, was a quick job with no budget,
and we elected to use Kenyon's usual form of on-campus promotions:
8.5 x 11 photocopied one-sheets. I wanted a little more
flair, though, so I designed something that could be produced
quickly on an laserjet printer.
The poster for Edward Pols' The Mind as Cause: Redefining
the Mind-Body Problem had more time and money attached,
so we decided on spot color and a glossy finish. Both Pessin
and Pols were suitably impressed with the results.
The Maskit poster was produced using Bryce, PageMaker
and Illustrator. The Pols poster was the first piece of
work I'd done using InDesign, in addition to the usual Illustrator
