One of Vectorform’s new designers, Ryan Cady who is Third Thursday Chair of AIGA Detroit, attended Chirs Pullman’s lecture at CCS in Detroit. Mr. Pullman gave his lecture on his vast history as a Designer, his process from being a History major in undergrad at Princeton, and his ultimate admission to getting his MFA from Yale.
After graduating from Yale in 1966, Chris Pullman began teaching at Yale and working in his own practice with his wife before being asked to become the head of design at WGBH in Boston. The station had just been rebranded, and this was at a time when public television was still in its infancy stages and was not as well known as it is today. He worked at WGBH for over 30 years helping to mold the station by creating promotions, print, motion graphics for shows such as Nova and Frontline, some of the earliest interactive content for the web (Prodigy!), as well heading up the design group for WGBH’s new HQ in Boston.
He also created the 2mobile to promote the station, which is pretty awesome.
