See More of Seymour

He needs no introduction, you mention his first name and you know immediately who we’re talking about. And here lately he seems to be everywhere.

There are several upcoming events featuring Seymour Chwast and a new short film that takes you inside his studio and thinking.

On Monday, May 16, as part of New York City’s Strand Book Store series Discovering Design, Chwast, along with Jack Lenor Larsen and Jane Thompson, will take part in the panel discussion Legends of New York City Design—showcasing lifelong design luminaries all in their ninth decade. These icons are included in the newly published book Twenty Over Eighty, by Aileen Kwun and Bryn Smith (Princeton Architectural Press, 2016), which will be available at the event. Tickets are available now.

On Tuesday May 24, New York’s esteemed Cooper Union marks the 65th graduation anniversary of one of its most famous alumni, Seymour Chwast, who will spend an evening talking about his life as a designer, activist, and author. Joining him will be design writer Steven Heller. A reception follows the talk, and both Chwast and Heller will sign copies of their most recent books.

The free event is open to the public and takes place in Cooper Union’s Rose Auditorium starting at 6:30 p.m.

And today, the Art Directors Club (ADC) and design company COLLINS are proud to debut the exciting new ADC Design Masters film series, kicking off today with a short film featuring ADC Hall of Fame laureate Seymour Chwast. The films — conceived and produced by COLLINS — are the first in a series which will take an inside look at the lives and careers of a select group of masters whose work continues to inspire designers and creatives of all ages around the world.
