FUTUREformer: one career
Jane Fitzgerald (BFA 1970)
In 1969, the Dean of the School of Art advised that with my solid foundation in Fine Arts, I could add some technical skills to prepare for a career in graphic design. Also, listening to one's client is key to achieving successful results in this collaborative endeavor. These print and digital examples illustrate bridging the gap between fine art and business. They share information and have either won awards, are personal favorites or represent a quantum leap into a new area; all were created under the umbrella of one successful, design firm Ñ allowing for name variations over the years.
This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
