    AIGA Presents: Primo Angeli

    Thursday April 24, 2014 / 6 – 7 pm

    For over 40 years, Primo Angeli built an international reputation for his work in packaging, corporate identity and poster design from his San Francisco office. His clients include global brands like Coca-Cola and DHL, and international events like the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. None of this meant he was above designing for regional or local icons like the Boudin Bakery, Henry Weinhard’s or Mariani.

    Join the Nevada Museum of Art and AIGA Reno Tahoe, the professional organization for design, in welcoming Primo and Deanie Angeli in a conversation about life before Design, walking the fine line of art and commerce and other Olympic stories.

    No-Host Bar Chez Louie 5pm Presentation 6pm Sponsored by AIGA Reno/Tahoe, the Nevada Museum of Art and Stan Can Design™. Special Thanks to Jeff Pickett of DuPuis Brands.

    A number of Primo Angeli’s designs are in permanent collections and exhibitions worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Smithsonian Institution and Library of Congress in Washington D.C., Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, Cooper-Hewitt Museum of Design in New York, Achenbach Collection at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw Poster Collection, and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. http://www.primoangeli.com/bio/
