My Type of Beauty
If there’s one word that describes the work of Italian-American graphic designer Louise Fili, it is “elegant!” From her studio in midtown Manhattan, Louise lovingly crafts typographic brand designs for restaurants and specialty food packaging that are anything but typical—and her graceful touch on New York City alone is visible from restaurants and subways to just about any Manhattan bodega you walk into.
Formerly senior designer for Herb Lubalin, Louise was art director of Pantheon Books from 1978 to 1989, where she designed close to 2,000 book jackets. Louise has taught and lectured on graphic design and typography, and her work is in the permanent collections of the Library of Congress, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Bibliothèque Nationale. She is a member of the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame and has received the medal for Lifetime Achievement from the AIGA and the Type Directors Club. Her design studio, Louise Fili Ltd., focuses largely on food, books and culture.
Join us Thursday, October 19 as Louise shares with us her passions for good food, beautiful lettering and classic Italian craftsmanship that have made her “the Envy of Every Designer.”
