The Philadelphia branch of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) selected TPS alumni parent Mark Willie (parent of Yane '11) as the 2014 recipient of the distinguished AIGA Fellow Award. Mark’s work will be on display at AIGA Space beginning on November 7.
The AIGA fellow award program recognizes designers who have made a significant contribution to raising the standard of excellence in practice and conduct within their local or regional design community. Contributions in education, writing, and leadership are given equal consideration. The Fellow Award is the highest honor an AIGA chapter may bestow upon one of its members.
Mark is a full teaching professor of graphic design in the Department of Design at the Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, Drexel University. He is the current steward of the Frank Fox and the Kenneth Lewalski Polish Poster Collections, as well as the Hochman Collection of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar magazines, all housed at Westphal College, Drexel University.
