Libby Leshgold Gallery

Emily Carr University of Art + Design is pleased to welcome London-based graphic designer Fraser Muggeridge to Vancouver as the recipient of the Fall 2018 Audain Distinguished Artist-in-Residence.

Please join us for a talk, with reception to follow, on Tuesday, October 9 at 6pm in the Reliance Theatre. 

Fraser Muggeridge is director of Fraser Muggeridge Studio, a graphic design company based in London. Throughout a wide range of formats, from artists’ books and exhibition catalogues to posters, marketing material, exhibitions and websites, the studio prioritises artists’ and writers’ content over the imposition of a signature style. By allowing images and texts to sustain their own intent and impact, each project is approached with typographic form and letterform playing a key role in arriving at a sympathetic yet subtly alluring object.

Fraser Muggeridge founded and is a tutor at Typography Summer School, a week-long programme of typographic study for recent graduates and professionals, held in London (since 2010) and New York (since 2013). He is a visiting lecturer at The University of Reading (since 2003) on the MA Book Design Course and Camberwell College of Art, London, 2nd Year of BA Graphic Design (since 2011).

The Audain Distinguished Artist-in-Residence Program, generously funded by Michael Audain and the Audain Foundation for the Visual Arts, enables the University to bring the world’s leading contemporary artists to live and work in Vancouver for up to a three month period.
