In a talk that’s part history lesson, part love letter to graphics, information designer Tommy McCall traces the centuries-long evolution of charts and diagrams — and shows how complex data can be sculpted into beautiful shapes. “Graphics that help us think faster, or see a book’s worth of information on a single page, are the key to unlocking new discoveries,” McCall says.

We have offered our services pro bono for over 20 years to produce posters that promote the annual, outdoor concert series performed by the Tucson Pops Orchestra. That’s a lot of concepts for the same event, but we love working on these creations every year!

Replacing Hate through Design

Replace the Hate

The weeks following the 2016 Presidential election saw an unprecedented rise in hate speech, hate crimes, vandalism and violence against minorities and people of color. According to the FBI hate crime statistics, the day after the election there was a 127% increase in the number of hate crimes reported and that number continued to grow for the next 10 days.

Replace-the-Hate is a grassroots effort led by design educators that builds communal ties, renounces hate and rejoices in diversity through creative expressions and community art-making events.
