Doug Kisor studied design at Michigan State University and Western
Michigan University. His graduate work included study in Switzerland and
Italy, each experience having a transforming influence on his work—in
particular, one amazing afternoon spent with Max Huber and Achille
Castiglioni. In 1997, Kisor accepted a position at the College for
Creative Studies, a private art and design college located in Detroit,
where he is professor and chair of the Graphic Design department. The
unique nature of this professional program offered Kisor an opportunity
to develop a curriculum that builds on tradition and embraces new
methods and channels of communication.
Kisor is a founding member and the first president of AIGA Detroit,
where he has also served in the capacity of education chair, programming
chair and co-chair of “Design Re:view” in 2004, AIGA Detroit’s first
juried exhibition. He has been a board member for the Graphic Design
Education Association and chaired the GDEA conference “Ethics and Values
in Design Education.” In 2003, Kisor and senior student Nina Bianchi
were invited to present CCS’s four-year design program experience at the
Icograda Visualogue conference in Nagoya, Japan, as one of 11 programs
globally representing new directions in design education. His recent
presentations include papers at “Schools of Thought II” and “Schools of
Thought III,” in 2005 and 2007, respectively. His work has been
published in the AIGA annual, American Center for Design’s 100 Show
annual, Print regional annual, Soul Design exhibition
book, Typographics 2, Typography Now Two and other
regional and national publications.
Kisor coordinates an annual international summer graphic design study
program based in Den Haag, the Netherlands. The program has created an
opportunity for hundreds of students and professionals to work with and
within one of the world’s most innovative design cultures. The program,
titled “De Program,” is studio-based, working with teams of innovative
design thinkers and practitioners.

When it comes to design, most companies have at some point found themselves at a crossroads, choosing between doing work in-house or hiring an agency. The more important design becomes to business, the more businesses are inclined to try their hand at developing in-house talent. This presents a challenge for agencies. As the work shifts, how do we shift accordingly? And what would the goals of such a shift entail?
