It all started for Tom Ingalls in Minnesota, where he was born and
After receiving his BFA in graphic design from Syracuse University,
Ingalls traveled west to earn an MFA in graphic design from the
California Institute of the Arts, in Valencia, where he has taught since
1980 and is currently senior adjunct professor.
His first real job was for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art,
making everything from banners to books and then some. In 1978 he was
lured to San Francisco by Rolling Stone, for whom he worked until
the magazine moved to New York City. Ingalls decided to stay in San
Francisco and start his own firm, Ingalls Design.
Ingalls first joined AIGA in 1976. He finds great satisfaction in the
many clients and colleagues he has worked with along the way, which
include museums, publications, wineries and distilleries, restaurants
and bars, banks, law firms and software companies.
Richard Saul Wurman (2004 AIGA Medalist) is a champion of making information understandable both for himself and for others, most notably as the creator and chairman of the hugely popular popular TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conferences, which he chaired from 1984 until 2002. He has also written, designed and published more than 81 books, each tackling a subject or idea that he personally had difficulty understanding.
