Peter Fine, Associate Professor of Art, Graphic Design

MFA, University of Arizona, 2004

BA, California State University, Chico, 1994


I am the author of Sustainable Graphic Design: Principles and Practice, published by Bloomsbury Academic in 2016. I also write, curate, teach and produce creative work on the subject of race and representation, to culminate in my next single author book for Bloomsbury, The Design of Race: How Visual Culture Shaped America to be published in 2019.

More recently I have begun engaging materially with text and image as visual ephemera, creating both and integrating the two. My hand lettering forms through drawing as word and image and also when juxtaposed with images, reinforces the primary role of text in my work. This stretches back to my early interests in collage, drawing and writing.

I was raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin but have lived the majority of my adult life in the U.S. American west in California, Arizona, New Mexico and now Wyoming. I practiced graphic design for fifteen years during which time I also earned my AA, BA and MFA degrees in visual communication. I have been teaching design for fifteen years. I teach studio courses in design, design history and visual culture, emphasizing the role of the designer past, present and future.
