Gordon R. Salchow was appointed, in 1968, to conceptualize and to
administer a new department of graphic design for the University of
Cincinnati. Its pioneering initiatives and its success quickly
established the school as one of graphic design’s most respected and
influential educational institutions. This program played a key role in
engineering the theoretical underpinnings of graphic design pedagogies
in America. Salchow has lectured extensively for various institutions
and organizations. His design work and articles have appeared in several
exhibitions, periodicals and books. He has judged many competitions,
and served on numerous design panels for the National Endowment for the
Arts, Ohio Arts Council and others. Salchow was vice president of
education for AIGA while serving on its national board of directors
(1988–1993). He was given the Cincinnati Art Directors Club’s Lifetime
Achievement Award and the Minnesota Graphic Design Association’s similar
Design for Society Award. Salchow has an MFA degree from Yale
University and a BFA degree from the Minneapolis College of Art and
Design. Prior to working for the University of Cincinnati, Salchow
taught at the Kansas City Art Institute.
In addition to being named as one of AIGA Cincinnati’s first two
Fellows, Salchow’s recent honors and activities include: his selection
as Outstanding Professor of the Year; inclusion in a Print
article by Katherine McCoy (“Bits and Pieces of Basel”); serving on a
panel at an AIGA education conference in Philadelphia; being a featured
speaker and exhibitor for the symposium/celebration at the Kansas City
Art Institute (“Another ’60s Revolution”); publishing a testimonial in a
book by Michael Kroeger (Paul Rand: Conversations with Students);
presenting the keynote address for an AIGA Cincinnati event
(“Origination Design Show”); giving the inaugural lecture for an alumni
series at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design; and delivering the
keynote presentation for an anniversary symposium at Philadelphia’s
University of the Arts (“GD40”).
He plans to retire from the University of Cincinnati in 2010, after
45 years as a design educator.
For International Women’s Day this year we decided to touch base with Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, who organized the pivotal Women in Design conference in Los Angeles in 1970, to get her perspective on how far we have (or haven’t) come in the past four decades.
