Book Night: Present & Tense
March 13, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Book Night with Matt Dorfman/Jim Tierney/Megan Wilson
Folks, it is that time of the year again, where we invite talented young art directors and designers to show their amazing work and see them sweat profusely.
This year we will have the talented Matt Dorfman explaining how art directing at the New York Times and illustrating feed in to working on book covers and, since he has never actually held down a job in book publishing, why most of the work that he is showing only ever gets done between the hours of 10:00 PM and 2:00 AM (so basically it’ll be 20 minutes of discussing stress positions) The amazing Jim Tierney will be talking about life after Penguin (and how intimadated he is talking in front of grown ups) and marvelous Megan Wilson will deflect all attention to unsuspecting designers of Vintage books.
Matt Dorfman is a designer, illustrator and art director of the NY Times op/ed page.
Jim Tierney is an illustrator and designer who has been freelancing for about a year.
Megan Wilson is the art director of Vintage and Anchor Books (she is also a shopkeeper and style writer)
