Ron Miriello is the founder and director of Miriello Grafico, in San
Diego, and a founding member of the AIGA San Diego chapter. Miriello
studied at Colorado State University and completed his design degree in
Italy at La Poggerina, where he later taught and lived for two years
before moving to San Diego in the early 1980s. As a designer in the San
Diego community for 30 years, he has helped set a high benchmark for
creativity while mentoring early career designers on the many things not
taught in school but crucial to succeeding in the design business.
Together with the founding board members of the San Diego chapter,
Miriello negotiated with Moscow to have 300 Soviet posters documenting glasnost
and perestroika sent to San Diego for exhibition in 1989. The
collection ignited the fledgling local AIGA chapter, which now has 450
members. In 1990, after the fall of the communist bloc, the posters were
bequeathed by the Union of Soviet Artists to AIGA San Diego and have
since traveled to all AIGA chapters.
More recently, Miriello has been interviewing and photographing
craftsmen of everyday objects in Italy for a book series about
handcrafted products in a world of global mass production.
Miriello divides his time between the new Miriello Grafico design
warehouse located in the Barrio Logan neighborhood of San Diego and
Radicondoli (near Siena, Italy), where he creates his own works away
from the world of clients, deadlines and budgets.
Dana Arnett is recognized with a 2014 AIGA Medal for setting the highest standards for communicating corporate interests and championing design as a
strategic, multidisciplinary function for both firm and client.
