Posters Without Borders

Erin WrightMore than words, a powerful image can tell a story that stays with you, challenges you, inspires you, or changes the way you think. Erin Wright designs such images, and will show us some of his award-winning poster designs and speak to us about the art of visual storytelling, what works, and why.

Wright earned his Master of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Graphic Design and Illustration at the University of Arizona and his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design at Colorado State University. He is currently a Professor of Design and former Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

He has more than 25 years of experience as a designer and teacher winning several local, regional, national, and international awards for design. Wright’s work has been exhibited at the Society of Illustrators Museum in New York first as a student and then as an educator. Under the nom de guerre Asylum his work has appeared in nationally and internationally competitive design annuals and compendiums such as PRINT Regional Annual, Creativity, New Logo World (published in Tokyo), and American Corporate Identity.

Wright has also won several Gold and Silver ADDY Awards including Designer of the Year and Illustrator of the Year at the Birmingham ADDY Awards.
