Join us as Person Place Thing host Randy Cohen interviews the award-winning designer Gail Anderson in a live recording of the popular public radio series from the Type Directors Club.

Designer, writer, and educator Gail Anderson is the chair of BFA Advertising and BFA Design at the School of Visual Arts and the creative director at Visual Arts Press at SVA. Anderson is a partner at Anderson Newton Design and serves on the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee for the USPS and the advisory board for Poster House.

She is the recipient of the 2018 Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement and is an AIGA Lifetime Achievement Award winner.

Anderson is co-author of 15 books on design, typography, and illustration with Steven Heller, and her work is in the collections of the Library of Congress, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Milton Glaser Design Archives at the School of Visual Arts.

Person Place Thing is an interview show based on the idea that people are particularly engaging when they speak, not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing with particular meaning to them. The result: surprising stories from great talkers and thinkers

Person Place Thing takes place in front of an audience, with live music, at a variety of venues and is then edited for broadcast across a 23-station regional radio network, and a dozen other public radio stations around the country.
