Alumni Meet And Eat

By Julia Marsh

Tuesday evening, Steve and Lita reminisced about 20 years of MFA Design together with staff, and alums Yiming Bao '14, Mint Krongporn Thongongarj '18, Francisco Hernandez '14, Josh Hester '08, and Julia Marsh '19.

Special guest Warren Lehrer, who has taught Designing the Visual Book since the program's inception, also joined the party. Naturally, he'd worked with every student at the table! Alums exchanged stories of their favorite projects from his class, whether that meant orchestrating complex laser machine cuts or binding books using the most traditional methods.

We also learned about Francisco's role at Verizon, where he manages digital experiences. He shared particular insight into how granular design can become when working for a giant conglomerate. Look out for an Alumni Spotlight piece on his work coming soon!
