AIGA Boston + the ICA Present Brian Collins

Please join us for our annual design lecture organized in conjunction with ICA, The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston.

For over 16 years, AIGA Boston (The Professional Association for Design) and ICA/Boston have collaborated to highlight the work of today’s leading designers and thinkers through this annual lecture series. This year’s featured speaker is Brian Collins—co-founder of COLLINS, a San Francisco and New York-based transformation consultancy dedicated to creating experiences, products, and technologies. Collins’s work has been featured in The New York Times, NBC News, Forbes, Fortune, and more. Business Week named his design for Hershey in Times Square a retail “Wonder of the World.” Throughout his extensive career, Collins has worked with a diverse number of clients, from Mattel to Jaguar Cars. Collins’s team recently designed the AIGA’s 100th anniversary book and the Type Directors Club 60th Annual International Typography exhibition, using principles of generative typography. Collins is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design and was designated a Distinguished Alumnus in 2004.

Join us for a reception following the program and enjoy networking with fellow design professionals and enthusiasts.
