On 19 November 2020, we have the pleasure of inviting Dr. R. Roger Remington (RIT, USA), who is going to give a Seminar session on Design.
This seminar will offer participants an intensive presentation of the history of corporate identity in America between 1940 and 2000. Presented from a graphic design point-of-view, the first part of the seminar will be a visual program showing the historical development of a number of major corporate branding programs such as IBM (International Business Machines), CBS (Columbia Broadcasting System) and America Airlines as well as less well-known programs such as Sweet’s Catalog Service and International Paper Company. Emphasis will be on the design of the brand and its implementation.
