Here are some of my favorite events of his:
125th Anniversary of the Metropolitan Opera:
"Instead of over-the-top flowers and dripping crystals, fonts were our muse. Exploded, cropped, varied in type and color, the array of graphics not only provided a wonderful walk through the Opera s historic identities in print but it transformed the tent into a three dimensional collage. Elegant banners gently fluttered above vases and luminaries wrapped with glowing prints from every time period. "
Luminaries made from slide sheets and paper swatches
