Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar’s (VCU-Q) Graphic Design Department is organising a lecture entitled: ‘Two Cultures, One Design’ today. The lecture is open to the public. ‘Two Cultures, One Design’ presented by renowned Bosnian American illustrator Mirko Ilic will focus on how design is at the forefront of all innovation today, breaking all barriers to speak one language, that of creative expertise. The lecture will be followed by a book signing ceremony. Born in Bosnia, Mirko Ilic illustrated and art-directed posters, record covers, book covers, magazines, and comics before arriving in the US in 1986. He was commissioned by many of the major magazines and newspapers to work as an illustrator before going on to become Art Director for Time magazine’s international edition in 1991. In 1992, he became Art Director for the New York Times’s Op-Ed pages and in 1995 he established Mirko Ilic Corp, a graphic design, 3-D computer graphics and motion picture title studio.
