Design Spotlight
Pentagram Partners Tell All

Celebrating over 50 years of design, Pentagram is widely admired yet still somewhat mysterious.

Join Debbie Millman as she pulls back the curtain to uncover the firm’s secrets (of success and otherwise) in an unprecedented no-holds-barred interview with twelve (12!) of the firm’s partners: Abbott Miller, Andrea Trabucco-Campos, Angus Hyland, Eddie Opara, Emily Oberman, Giorgia Lupi, Luke Hayman, Matt Willey, Michael Bierut, Michael Gericke, Natasha Jen, and Paula Scher.

Want your questions answered? Be sure to post your questions in Pentagram and Debbie Millman’s IG Threads!

After the event you’re invited to a signing of Pentagram: Living by Design, a two-volume compendium on the firm’s first half century, will follow. A limited number of copies will be available for purchase. To ensure your copy at the event, order your book here by February 21!

Event Series: Design Spotlight
These events are design talks or conversations that feature designers or creative teams sharing top of mind or breakout work.

About AIGA NY Education Event Warm-Ups
Warm-Ups is an initiative by AIGA NY Education to provide undergraduate design students at area schools a platform to introduce their work to the AIGA NY community, and to give our audiences an opportunity to see the best and brightest, and to learn about what’s happening at the area design programs. In previous years, the most promising and engaging students from Parsons, Pratt, SVA, FIT and Cooper Union have presented their projects alongside industry leaders in front of our audience of design professionals, educators and students.

Department chairs and faculty from area schools nominate students to present. Warm-Ups participants give 5-minute presentations about one project before the main presenter(s) of the evening takes the stage.

About Pentagram

Pentagram is a multi-disciplinary, independently owned design studio.

Their work encompasses graphics and identity, strategy and positioning, products and packaging, exhibitions and installations, websites and digital experiences, advertising and communications, data visualizations and typefaces, sound and motion. Their 24 partners are all practicing designers, and whether working collaboratively or independently, they do so in friendship.

Their structure is unique. They are the only major design studio where the owners of the business are the creators of the work and serve as the primary contact for every client. This reflects their conviction that great design cannot happen without passion, intelligence and—above all—personal commitment, and is demonstrated by a portfolio that spans five decades, many industries, and clients of every size.
