Panel Discussion at Fruitsuper

6:00pm–7:00pm
Our librarian Kate Long is traveling to Seattle for a panel on collecting design.

She joins graphic designer Scott Lindberg, Sallyann Corn of Fruitsuper, and Sean Wolcott of Rationale Design for a conversation moderated by Gabriel Stromberg around design collecting. How do you start a collection? Who are designers worth collecting? Panelists will share some of their personal favorite objects from their own design collections.

About Kate Long
Kate Long

Kate Long, Letterform Archive’s librarian, has a profound interest in book arts, typography, and concrete poetry, stemming from high school where she made art with abandoned Letraset, and later as the editor of a literary magazine where she enjoyed working with designers, artists, and writers. She also gained an appreciation for 20th-century graphic design while at the award-winning studio, Office. Kate earned her MLIS through Drexel University, which will serve her well as she helps to preserve and catalog the collection. She relishes helping people access the things that interest them.
