Pentagram Design is to appoint J Abbot Miller as a partner in its New York Office. Abbot, formerly director of the US multidisciplinary studio Design/ Writing/Research, is credited with pioneering the concept of ‘designer as author’.
Pentagram partner Paula Scher says this concept integrates well with the consultancy’s methods.
Abbot has won numerous awards from the Society for Publication Designers, particularly for his efforts on Zwice and Dance Ink magazines. His work will go on show in Pentagram’s London gallery from 28 June.
