AIGA Nashville and the MTSU Department of Art are proud to welcome renowned graphic designer Steve Frykholm to Nashville to share his life in design and love of design to our creative community. Known to most for his time as Vice President of Creative Design at furniture company Herman Miller, Frykholm pushed the envelope as the company's first in-house graphic designer by creating, early in his career, the now iconic posters for the Herman Miller Summer Picnic Series. We look forward to hearing about Steve's award-winning design process and tenure of nearly five decades in corporate America. We hope you will join us for this rare opportunity to hear from a design icon!
