Bio

Doug Bartow is an art director and designer with over 20 years experience working with national and international clients. As Director of Design at MASS MoCA for 8+ years, Doug helped put the country's largest arts center on the world's cultural map by designing the museum's identity system, exhibition and wayfinding signage, print collateral, catalogs and web presence (with only the help of an occasional summer intern).

Doug left MASS MoCA in 2003 to co-found id29 in Troy, NY. Since opening its doors, id29 has collaborated to build powerful brands, campaigns and marketing strategies for clients such as: COBRA PUMA Golf, Pitney Bowes, Firefly Bicycles, The Steve Case Foundation, Union College, The Travel Channel and Revolution Money, and was the agency behind Scholastic's national campaign for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 2007.

Doug earned a BFA in graphic design from the State University of NY at New Paltz and a MFA in 2D design from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Doug is the current President of AIGA Upstate NY.

Doug frequently lectures on design, and has written for design publications such as Speak Up and HOW Magazine. In 2010, Doug was named by Graphic Design USA as one of the top 50 People to Watch.

    I saw a pre-production version of this show at MASS MoCA a few years ago. I'd been a fan of Mark Mulcahy's haunting voice for years, and wasn't familiar with Ben Katchor's work until I saw the show. It was raw, but really well done. After the show, Mark and Ben took questions from the audience, and admitted that when they started to put the production together, neither of them even knew how to do a casting call! I'm glad to see they were able to bring the show to the next step. Now if someone can just convince Mark to get Miracle Legion back together for a triumphant reunion tour of the sub-continent...
