Join us for a night with the Pentagram's iconic designer and visual strategist, Eddie Opara.

This event is sold out.

Eddie Opara.

Opara is a prolific, multi-faceted designer and Pentagram partner whose work encompasses strategy, design and technology and has won numerous awards, including a Gold Cube from the Art Directors Club and honors from the AIGA, D&AD, and I.D. magazine. In 2011, Ebony put him on the “Power 100 Black American” list. In 2012 and 2014, Fast Company named him among “100 Most Creative People in Business.” His work is in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art.

Opara has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design, the Columbia University School of Architecture, and the Yale University School of Art — to name a few.

He is a recipient of the AIGA/Worldstudio scholarship that, similar to the AIGA DC Design Continuum Scholarship Fund, supports art and design students by offering them financial assistance. Because of this connection along with his stellar work, we have invited Opara to showcase his work and further inspire our creative community.

Opara will be signing books following his presentation, so please makes sure to purchase his most recent one in advance — “Best Practices for Graphic Designers, Color Works: Right Ways of Applying Color in Branding, Wayfinding, Information Design, Digital Environments and Pretty Much Everywhere Else.” Feel free to bring Opara books purchased outside of the event.
