Attend this free lecture by University of Arizona alum Jonathan James Black on Monday, Oct. 23.
“a.i., algae, brotox, rice barf, letterpress, devil’s lettuce … and other topics relevant to design, art, and life” begins at 5:30 p.m. in Room 312 of the School of Art Building. 1031 N. Olive Road.
Black (MFA ’12) is co-founder of The Office of Ordinary Things (TOOOT), a climate, sustainability and social good-focused design studio based in San Francisco. The studio aims to create memorable brands while implementing environmentally responsible practices and helping the design community do the same.
In June, the studio earned praise for its new book, “CDR Primer,” about carbon-dioxide removal. “(It’s) one of the most impactful projects we’ve worked on to date — and quite possibly will ever work on,” says Black.
