Robert L Peters
Robert is active internationally as a designer, strategic consultant, policy advisor, juror, guest lecturer, and author. He is the founding principal of the award-winning design firm CIRCLE based in Winnipeg, Canada. He is also a former president of Icograda (2001-2003), a foreign correspondent for Communication Arts magazine, a Fellow of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC), and author of the book ‘Worldwide Identity’ published by Rockport. In 2006 he was the recipient of the Koopman Distinguished Chair in the Visual Arts from Hartford Art School, Connecticut, and also spent a month in Melbourne, Australia as Designer in Residence in the Faculty of Art & Design, Monash University. He was raised and schooled in Germany, Switzerland and England and has traveled extensively (more than 50 countries).
Daniel is a rare breed - a hybrid of equal parts business, design, programming, and strategy - ready to change the world. He's a professor at the School of Visual Arts, a writer on digital strategy with a book scheduled to launch in late 2010, and all around web nerd. Over the past decade he has worked with clients such as: 1% For The Planet, Adobe, BBDO, CosmoGIRL!, Dave Matthews Band, Facebook, Google, Greenpeace, Live Earth, MTV, PBS, Phish, Rachael Ray, Sony Picture Classics, TBS, The Pixies, VH1, and XM Radio.
In his free time he enjoys being a loving husband and father, wandering the streets of NYC, trying obscure fu-fu beers, single malt scotches, and evening at the drive-in around the corner from his house in rural upstate NY.
