Jessica Helfand new book

Jessica Helfand is a designer, author, educator, and founding editor of Design Observer. She is Artist in Residence at Yale’s Institute for Network Science and teaches in Yale’s School of Art and School of Management. Her paintings are abstract renderings of scientific truths—teased nerves and torqued membranes and dense, dendritic cells—glimpses of the rich biological phenomena shared by all human beings. These paintings are featured in her latest book, Design: The Invention of Desire, which was published in 2016 by Yale University Press, and will be on view at the Type Directors Club through February 3rd, 2017.

This is the last TDC event of 2016, which is our 70th anniversary! We hope to see you.
