PAUL SAHRE: THE LAST GRAPHIC DESIGNER ON EARTH with an Introduction by John Flansburgh from They Might Be Giants

Graphic designer Paul Sahre will share his recent work (for the likes of New Directions, Public Bikes, They Might Be Giants, Malcolm Gladwell and American Illustration), and will discuss change, the future of the profession and the fact that no one (including the AIGA) seems to know what to call themselves these days.

Paul Sahre is a graphic designer. He established his New York studio Office of Paul Sahre (or O.O.P.S.) in 1997; while consciously maintaining a small office, Sahre has nevertheless built a large presence in American graphic design. The balance he strikes between commercial and personal projects is evident in the physical layout of his workspace: part design studio, part silkscreen lab, part classroom. In one room he designs and prints posters (some of which are in the permanent collection at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum) for various off-off Broadway theaters, while in the other room he is busy designing book covers for authors such as Rick Moody, Chuck Klosterman, Ben Marcus and Ernest Hemingway.Sahre is also a frequent visual contributor to The New York Times.
