GD USA Magazine Names 'People to Watch'
Graphic Design USA featured a number of people directly
connected to the Academy of Art University for its highly anticipated People to Watch issue: Dana
Steffe, Ed O'Brien, Brain Singer and Mark Randall. In a letter from the publisher, Gordon Kaye
describes the magazine's 2009 selections as "creative professionals who we have come to know and
respect for a combination of talent, leadership, success, insight, business savvy, community
service and newsworthiness."
Dana Steffe and Ed O'Brien are successful alumni—and Ed is also an instructor in Graphic
Design. Brian Singer's notable 1000 Journals Project will soon be launched in a special design and
art experiment for Academy alumni; Brian is a frequent faculty member at the Academy. Mark Randall
is the creator of the innovative Design Ignites Change initiative; student and mentor teams from
the Academy are presently developing an exciting new project: Sustaining San Francisco. The Academy
of Art University extends its congratulations to each of these fine designers.
