Archie Boston is a nationally recognized art director, designer,
author and educator. He chaired the graphic design program at California
State University Long Beach for 12 terms over a period of 32 years, and
was named Outstanding Professor of the Year in 2004. He has also
operated his design-consulting firm, Archie Boston Graphic Design, for
the past 32 years. He has served two terms as president of the Art
Directors Club of Los Angeles.
Considered one of the nation’s leading design instructors and a
highly respected graphic designer, Boston has been featured in Graphic
Design: USA magazine as one of 35 design pioneers. In 2001, Boston
published Fly in the Buttermilk: Memoirs of an African American in
Advertising Design & Design Education, in which he describes his
experiences as a minority in the creative community.
Boston’s work has consistently been honored by many distinguished
competitions, including: the New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles Art
Directors Clubs’ annual shows, Communication Arts and Art
Direction Magazine shows, Western Art Director’s show, Print
magazine’s Regional Design Annual, the Type Directors Club and the AIGA
Annual Design Competitions, The Los Angeles Belding Awards shows, Graphis
Annual and “Typomondus 20,” an international exposition of the best
graphics of the 20th century.
In 2007, Boston was the first African American to receive the
prestigious AIGA Fellows Award from AIGA Los Angeles. That same year,
Boston also transferred his 20 Outstanding Los Angeles Designers
documentaries to DVD, interviews which he videotaped on a sabbatical
leave project in 1986. He sold the DVDs on eBay and donated a portion of
the proceeds to AIGA and his high school alma mater. These historical
design documentaries are now in university libraries across the country.
Stephen Doyle is recognized with a 2014 AIGA Medal for being the ultimate “designer’s designer,” merging imagination, intelligence, creativity and craftsmanship through incisive and enduring design.
