About this Event
This lecture will be presented virtually streamed via zoom.
The KU Design Symposium Lecture Series (formerly the Hallmark Symposium) was established in 1984 to enrich the education of all KU students, and in particular those in the Department of Design, through exposure to designers, artists and educators from the United States and around the world. In this 35-plus year history, the series has grown to become a cultural asset to the local creative community beyond campus. Each year, students and area professionals are able to view groundbreaking work, explore provocative ideas, and learn from the practitioners who are expanding what is possible through art, design, and creative action.
All lectures are free and open to the public, both in person on campus or virtually.
CLAUS is the moniker for the one-man creative studio of illustrator/designer Justin C. Harder. With a distinct sense of humor, a clear focus on bold, graphic illustrations and conceptually sound graphic design problem-solving, CLAUS brings a unique perspective to solutions for clients of all sizes.
Justin went to Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL to pursue his dream making a living out of entertaining with his art. He majored in Illustration and also developed an interest in graphic design, finding ways to combine the two becoming a new fascination. After graduation, he worked for 7 years in his home state of Texas at a commercial/entertainment studio as an illustrator/designer/Art Director before setting off on his own in 2011, heading west to LA to open CLAUS, his own freelance business. CLAUS recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary and is rocking stronger than ever, so reach out and let’s make something awesome together!
