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.
Steven Heller has immortalized our graphic past and made coherence of our present. He is the author, co-author, or editor of more than 60 books on design-related topics. A journalist, critic, and commentator, he has written for a wide array of publications and has been the editor of AlGA's journal of graphic design, Voice, since its inception in the early '80s. In addition, for 33 years he was an art director at the New York Times, originally on the OpEd Page and for almost 30 of those years with the New York Times Book Review. Currently, he is co-chair of SVA's “MFA Designer as Author” department and a special consultant on new programs to the president of SVA, and writes the Visuals column for the New York Times Book Review. In recognition of his role as the ubiquitous, tireless chronicler of our design times, he was awarded an AIGA Medal in 1999.
