As the Associated Press announces the debut of the first new logo in over 30 years, the AP Corporate Archives and Corporate Communications staff invites you to a program exploring the development, design, and promotion of the new logo and its accompanying visual identity system. Speakers will include Francesca Pitaro, AP Processing Archivist, who will talk about the challenges of organizing the AP Publications Collection, from which so much historical graphic art and context has been gleaned; Tina Antonion, Director, Creative Services, who spearheaded the logo redesign project for AP, and David Jalbert-Gagnier, principal of the design firm Objective Subject, who produced the actual logo design and other assets associated with the visual identity system.
The program will be followed by a viewing of the exhibit: (AP) Means Associated Press: 166 Years of Logotype Design, curated by Director of the Corporate Archives Valerie Komor and former Assistant Archivist Sam Markham. A reception follows in the gallery.
