Patrick Coyne is the editor and designer of Communication Arts, the world’s largest journal of visual communication. The recipient of numerous awards for his design and art direction (including a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators), Coyne received the 2004 AIGA Design Leadership Award and was named a 2012 AIGA/San Francisco Fellow. As a drummer he still enjoys rocking out with his bandmates in Zru Vogue—much to the embarrassment of his children. And as a middle-aged snowboarder he resents now being called a “grey-on-a-tray.”
Communication Arts is the leading professional journal for designers, art directors, design firms, agencies and corporate communications departments. Current paid circulation is 45,000. Through editorials, feature articles and annual competitions it sponsors, CA provides new ideas and information, while promoting the highest professional standards for the field.
Patrick Coyne will discuss the history and philosophy of the magazine, how CA’s competitions work and how creatives are chosen for profiles in the magazine. He will also present a selection of award-winning design and advertising projects produced on limited budgets and discuss the future of creativity in the post-information age.
