We were elated to have Bob Gill, living legend of graphic design, join Shillington New York for a guest lecture. Such an amazing opportunity for our students to hear from one of the industry’s best! Gill’s lecture covered a lot of ground—challenging our students to research, have a process and focus on solving problems.
“I think the fun of being a graphic designer is to do something original. To make images that no one has ever seen before.”
After enlightening our students, we pulled Gill aside to answer a few questions about his design experience and principles. Can you believe he talks about dog turd?
“I’m never snobbish about a job. I never recoil against a job.”
Our sincerest thanks to Bob Gill for sharing his time and knowledge with Shillington!
If you’re not familiar with Gill, he’s an American illustrator, designer, filmmaker, writer and teacher—packing many careers into one.
