Greetings from the cold frozen North

In an effort to foster cross-collegiate design happenings, I'd like to extend an open invitation to Duluth. We have many unique shops and restaurants like the Electric Fetus, Ragstock, Pizza Lucé and Hell's Kitchen. Cough.

Designer and founding principal Bill Thorburn of Carmichael Lynch Thorburn in Minneapolis will be speaking at the University of Minnesota Duluth next Tuesday, October 16, as part of UMD's Art + Design Lecture Series. The lecture takes place at 6pm in the Tweed Museum of Art.

Bill Thorburn became founding principal of Carmichael Lynch Thorburn (CLT)in 1996. CLT, Minneapolis, specializes in the design needs of clients looking to establish their identities and build their brands.

Thorburn has 20 years of internationally recognized design expertise. He started way back then with a fine arts degree from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. With CLT, Thorburn exercises his vision for strategic, powerful, lasting design every day. His list of client work is impressive: Nike, Microsoft, Harley-Davidson, Neiman Marcus, Dayton's, Caribou Coffee, ESPN, and Porsche, just to name a few. Bill Thorburn's design work is included in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum of Art in London, and the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. He has also had individual exhibits in Japan and London.
