Legacy: Don Adleta and Karen Nulf,

60 years of graphic design

 

Legacy chronicles the contributions of graphic design professors Don Adleta and Karen Nulf’s 60 years of combined teaching and creative ventures at Ohio University. Guided by a love of type, print, letters and especially their students, the exhibition unfolds a journey from creative research in drawing and photography to professional ventures highlighting sensitivity to typography and complex communication systems. The use of letterpress as a source of design fulfillment is embedded in this visual history that provides a path to the future of graphic design.
