I have written this message on August 17, since then Juliette Cezzar has been appointed as new Director.
We’ve had a fantastic run together and I want to thank you all for your commitment, dedication, passion, loyalty, and friendship. The 2011–12 academic year was a stellar one for the AAS Graphic Design Program, with both you and our students being recognized publicly and professionally. I hold you all accountable for our success.
Alas, all good things must come to an end, and this is where I take my final bow as Director. I have sent my letter of resignation on the last day of July and it has been accepted. I will continue as a faculty and perhaps spend a little more time on my own professional endeavors. It has been my pleasure to work with all of you, and I look forward to continued camaraderie and conversation around our shared love of art, design, and education.
Anne Gaines, the new Dean of AMT, graciously offered to field your email and answer any questions until my replacement is announced. Knowing many people who worked with her at the SPACE I have no doubt that you will be in excellent hands.
With love and friendship and honor,
