James Victore in Corpus Christi

Texas A&M University Corpus Christi’s The School of Arts, Media and Communication’s Visiting Lecture Series Presents

James Victore

Time for a weekend trip to Corpus Christi? TAMU Corpus Christi is hosting James Victore as their first guest in their visiting lecture series.

James Victore is an artist and graphic designer whose work is instantly familiar, but completely its own thing.  His designs are vivid, memorable and (often) controversial,” says Hudson/Houston of Saatchi & Sastchi, NY.  James Victore is a self-taught, independent artist and designer.  Clients include Moet & Chandon, Aveda, Esquire and TIME Magazines, Yohji Yamamoto, Bobby Brown cosmetics, The New York Times, and the School of Visual Arts.  Awards include an Emmy for television animation, and Gold and Silver Medals from the New York Art Director’s Club.

Victore’s posters have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and are in the permanent collections of the Palais du Louvre, Paris, the Library of Congress, Washington, DC, the Design Museum in Zurich and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.  Victore lectures and teaches around the globe and is a professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York.  His book “Victore or, Who Died and Made You Boss?” was released by Abrams in 2010.  He lives, loves and works in Brooklyn, NY.
