Content Description

Posters designed by Philip and Kathryn (Perna) Doherty as part of “Hampshire Graphic Design” known as “HGD”. Kathryn writes: "After arriving at Hampshire and telling my advisor Arthur Hoener what I was interested in, he told me I should meet Phillip Doherty. Yes—it was a fantastic time at Hampshire. The whole art complex was still just a vision, but the visual art building was the first completed and where we spent almost all of our time. Our early “dates” were pulling all nighters hand-screenprint posters for events at Hampshire and in the Pioneer Valley. Phillip graduated a year ahead of me, and continued to live and work for a year at Hampshire-- teaching and running HGD with an office in Warner House. We then both worked at CBS Publications in the promotion department, then in Italy where we redesigned all of the printed material for the development office of Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, then formed our own Graphic Design Studio in New York then Connecticut. Our advisor Arthur had since gone to teach at UConn and asked us both to come and speak about our business to his class there, which we did."
