Following a short Keynote presentation about branding museums and cultural institutions, participants will be broken up into teams and given them a brief for a branding/identity assignment.
Teams then will work together brainstorming ideas, with DJ Stout offering individual Art Direction. At the end of the exercise, a representative from each team gets up in front of the whole group and presents their branding solution.
DJ Stout is one of 24 principals of the acclaimed international design consultancy Pentagram. Stout joined Pentagram as a partner in the Austin office in 2000. Pentagram, founded in London in 1972, currently has four offices around the world. In a special 1998 issue, American Photo selected DJ as one of the “100 most important people in photography.” In 2004 I.D. magazine selected Stout for “The I.D. Fifty.” In 2010 DJ Stout was recognized as an AIGA Fellow Award recipient for his exceptional contributions to the field of graphic design. Also in 2010, The Society of Illustrators honored DJ Stout with the national Richard Gangel Art Director Award.
