About this title:

Synopsis: Peter Seitz (1931-Present) is a legendary graphic designer, author, teacher and business owner who served as the first Design Director at The Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN) and established the graphic design curriculum at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Peter Seitz: Designing A Life is a chronicle of his life and work. Seitz began his design studies at the Ulm School of Design in Germany, studying with celebrated graphic designers Tomás Moldonado, Max Bill, and Otl Aicher. He received a Master s of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and Photography from Yale University in 1961, studying with Paul Rand, Bradbury Thompson and Herbert Matter. Upon moving to Minneapolis in 1964, Seitz became the first Director of Design at the Walker Art Center, where he created pioneering exhibitions as well as the groundbreaking journal Design Quarterly. Seitz went on to organize the Minnesota Chapter of AIGA, Siggraph, and the country's first interdisciplinary design firm, InterDesign. From business, Seitz moved into education, serving as Chair of Design at Minneapolis College of Art and Design from 1971 until 1998. Seitz followed the road less traveled in all aspects of his career, starting things rather than joining them. At each step, Seitz created communities. Whether conceptualizing the audiences of his Walker years, the innovative businesses of his years as a designer, or the networking potential of digital technology, Seitz understood community as a necessary ingredient to creative lives. Peter Seitz: Designing A Life rests on Seitz's belief that discourse is the heart of creativity and that community is the heart of discourse. -Vince Leo

He brought technology and modernist rigor to the curriculum at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where he taught for more than thirty years and influenced generations of designers. Seitz shaped the design environment of the Twin Cities by bringing together the business and arts communities in service to the common good and by helping to found organizations to promote the value of design.
