UH GAP, in conjunction with the University of Houston Graphic Design Program, invites you to attend the 2019 Main Event, with special guest Benjamin Van Dyke, featuring the awarding of 2019 UH Graphic Design Student Scholarships.
Informed by critical theory and crypto-linguistics, Benjamin Van Dyke's work uses language and letterforms as communicative yet enigmatic systems. Language and form become embodiments of the sociopolitical dialogues and discords between individuals and cultures, extending the formal power of graphic design to function as sociopolitical engagement. Recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship in The Netherlands and former tenured faculty at the University of Buffalo, he currently serves as Associate Professor, Associate Chair, and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design at Michigan State University.
