Show & Tell: Michael Ellsworth from Civilization

Posted on Oct 5th, 2015 by Kate Bingaman-Burt


Please help us welcome Michael Ellsworth from Seattle based CIVILIZATION! Our first Show & Tell Lecture is happening October 8th at noon in room 320.

As a founder of Civilization, a design firm rooted in social change, Michael has built over a decade of breakthrough work for a diverse group of clients ranging from The Nature Conservancy, Frye Art Museum to the World Economic Forum, as well as self-initiated projects, such as Death Over Dinner, design podcast Beyond This Point, and the ongoing free Seattle Design Lecture Series.

In his talk he will share insights on how to unify the social, cultural and environmental value of your work and show real-life examples of how graphic design can become a catalyst for change.
