An Evening with Senior Illustration Students from University of the Arts, Featuring a Keynote Address by David Plunkert

This evening honors the work of graduating illustration seniors. Please join us as we begin with the inspiring words of our guest speaker David Plunkert, and move on to a reception featuring food, drink, and most importantly, the portfolios of our soon to be graduates. This event is a joining place for Philadelphia’s design community and The University of the Arts academic community. We welcome design professionals, alumni, and faculty to mix with our seniors and speak to them about their work in a casual atmosphere.

Internationally acclaimed designer and ilustrator David Plunkert founded Spur design with Joyce Hesselberth in 1995. Since then, his work has been recognized regularly by American Illustration, Print magazine, Communication Arts, and he has received a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. His work is in the collections of the Library of Congress, the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, The University of California Design Museum, and the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg.
