    April 20th, 2015
    Visiting Designer Lecture #10

    Eric’s work has been described to be “heavily motivated by research into the nature of graphic design itself, exploring the means of standardized production[…] within digital technologies and print-based contexts” (It’s Nice That). Eric Hu’s design and writing is a reflection of his media-sensitive, culturally-engaged practice. You can find Eric at erichu.info/; on e-r-h.tumblr.com/ where he answers various questions from ‘anonymous persons’; and as Twitter virtuoso @_erichu.

    Eric Hu is a partner at Nothing in Common working in branding, interaction design and illustration. He previously worked as the design lead at OKFocus working for clients such as Nike, the Wolfsonian Museum, Phillips, Tumblr and Atlantic Records as well as in-house projects such as Newmoticons.

  3. Bijan Berahimi & Chris Burnett
    Calarts Alumni – BFA Graphic Design
    Monday 9th of February – 7 pm
    California Institute of the Arts – F200
    Open for public

    Bijan Berahimi (BFA 2013) relocated to Portland from Los Angeles to work on the 2014 World Cup for Nike Football. While at CalArts, Berahimi founded FISK, an online/print journal and the now annual CalArts Print Fair. Berahimi currently operates his own design practice working for both commercial and cultural clients. In addition he continues to develop FISK which now has a physical location in Portland.

    Chris Burnett (BFA 2013) is still figuring it out. After graduating from CalArts with Bijan, he decided to stay in LA as his interest shifted from design to music. However, he still held a design position for the hip hop collective Odd Future. Soon afterwards, another job offer in Portland aligned with his urge to move out of his parents’ house. He worked on the Brand Design team for Nike Sportswear for about a year, until he decided to go out on his own. 2015 holds a promising freelance career for Chris, and a whole lot more time to work on his music.
