Join MODA and Miami Ad School at Portfolio Center for a Design Conversation with illustrator Craig Frazier.

Craig Frazier”s work is recognized internationally for its wit, optimism and simplicity.

“I like to think that one of the explanations for Craig Frazier’s expressive and memorable illustrations is that he has been—and still is—a designer. The search for a concept—and not putting anything down until a concept is found—is what makes the end product great work that communicates, often about difficult subjects.”

—Ivan Chermayeff, partner, Chermayeff & Geismar
