Michael Vanderbyl has gained international prominence in the design
field as a practitioner, educator, critic and advocate. Since being
established in San Francisco in 1973, his firm— Vanderbyl Design—has
evolved into a multidisciplinary studio with expertise in identity,
print and digital communications, interiors, showrooms, retail spaces,
signage, textiles, fashion apparel, packaging, furniture and product
design. Printed work by Vanderbyl has gained recognition in every major
design competition in the United States and Europe; his work is part of
the permanent collections of several museums and is featured in national
and international publications. Vanderbyl’s showroom and product
designs have also earned numerous awards and distinctions.
In 1987 Vanderbyl was elected a member of the Alliance Graphique
Internationale (AGI), an international graphic design organization based
in Zurich. He has served three terms on the national board of directors
of AIGA and served as president for the 2003–2005 term. Vanderbyl holds
a position on the Design Advisory Board of the San Francisco Museum of
Modern Art, as well as on the museum’s Architecture and Design
Accessions Committee. He was awarded the AIGA
Medal in 2000 and currently presides as dean of design at the
California College of the Arts.
