Designed by the incomparable Kevin O’Callaghan, this exhibit includes Fili’s work from four decades displayed in different conceptually thematic room environments.

The exhibit at the ADC, 106 West 29th Street, NYC runs from Monday, September 8 through Friday, September 19.
Designer Resource: Typography Discover how to use typography more creatively and sharpen your skills with Better, Faster Type . In this two-week workshop, Denise Bosler will challenge your views and help you break out of a creative block.
