On September 17, the design community gathered for one of its most prominent annual events: the AIGA Design Legends Gala and the awarding of the AIGA Medal. One of the three 2009 medalists was BFA Advertising and Graphic Design faculty member Carin Goldberg who is, according to the AIGA, “recognized for her exquisite ability to join intelligence, craft and an eye for the evocative image in designing iconic pop-cultural and literary artifacts, and for her commitment to design education.” Her work ranges from book and CD covers to collages for The New York Times and the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department’s Senior Library.
Goldberg was introduced by a fellow SVA faculty member and past medal winner, the renowned designer and Master’s Series laureate Paula Scher. In receiving this honor, Golberg joins the ranks of previous winners, who include faculty member and alumnus Gail Anderson (2008), SVA Founder Silas H. Rhodes (2004) and current Acting Chairman Milton Glaser (1972).
