CAMH will be hosting the series Design Now—Houston that will explore a wide-range of graphic design output in the city. Nearly every week, a new set of graphic designers and artists will give a variety of talks about their projects, influences, and ideas.
Susan Rogers, Ned Dodington, and Javier Fadul will give an interactive presentation that will visualize Houston from the individual to the city as a whole. Rogers is the Director of the Community Design Resource Center (CDRC) at the University of Houston’s College of Architecture and an Assistant Professor. Her work focuses on design as a strategy for community change, and explores the seams between design, justice, and the public interest. She is the coauthor of “An Architecture of Change,” the introduction to Expanding Architecture: Design as Activism, edited by Bryan Bell and Katie Wakeford, and her work has been published in Urban Design International, Places Journal, ArtLies, and Cite: The Architecture and Design Review of Houston.
Dodington is the Design Director of the Visual Communications Team at PDR in Houston; the Founder and Director of Caroline Collective, Houston’s first and largest co-working space; the Founding Director of Animal Architecture.org, an ongoing investigation into the performative role of design in ecology; and a founding board member of C2 Creative, a non-profit resource for creative business development. Dodington’s work has been published in Architectural Design Magazine, Brkt Magazine, the Columbia University GSAP yearly student review, as well as in Rice: Working 06-08, and All things Must Move. He has written for The Architectural League in New York, Manifold Magazine, Arts and Culture Magazine, and the Houstonist.
Expert in all things digital, Fadul is User Experience Coordinator at Culture Pilot, an organization dedicated to “accelerating design and market culture.” Javier’s work has been fundamental in connecting thoughtful and creative people through his many endeavors, including TEDxHouston.
