When I started my design business, Ema Design Inc. in 1982, I was looking for opportunities to design posters. Since most of my clients were corporations, opportunities to design posters were hard to come by. One field of opportunity that did exist were cultural and professional design organizations. I have been a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) since 1984 serving as the Colorado chapter’s first Vice President. I was also the program chair for the Art Directors Club of Denver. The posters included are for a design conference at the Ice House called “Futures”. The red poster announces a lecture for Swiss designer, Fritz Gottschalk and the third announces a lecture by Michael Bierut when he was working for Massimo Vignelli.
