Letter from the Editor
Studio Design(ed)
Three years ago, with hope in our hearts, we started the publication you hold
in your hands. It grew out of a modest, one-color brochure called SMHArts,
which listed the Museum’s exhibitions and public programs. Sure, it was informative and useful, but it was a humble point of contact between the Museum
and our community. Then, through a gradual process of increasing design
sophistication and content development, Studio magazine took shape, and
became a place for us to rethink our engagement with our visitors and the
world at large.
Today, StudioWaO\Sd]ZdW\U`SQ]`R]TbVSaWU\WÆQO\be]`YPSW\UQ`SObSRPgO`bists of African descent, as well as a documentation of the ever-changing Harlem
landscape. With contributions from leading and emerging scholars, artists and
writers, Studio monitors and reports the pulse of contemporary black art and
culture. This publication is a rare glimpse into the complexities of the practices
and creations of many artists working today.
By nurturing another space to support the work of artists—beyond our gallery
walls—Studio expands the Museum’s mission and offers unparalleled
insight into the world of artistic endeavor and history. Through this magazine,
we seek to include everyone in the conversation on contemporary black art,
extend our critical reach and help establish a new role for art in society.
With this issue—the design issue—we continue our grand experiment:
a merger of design, art, scholarship and community. The graphic design is
new, and we still offer compelling looks at the artists who shape and examine
our everyday lives. These pages communicate the temper of the moment
and reinforce the immediacy and relevance of art—past, present and future.

The Map Office, a New York-based multidisciplinary design studio, specializes in
brand, web and print design. As a small yet internationally renowned design group,
the Map has forged both commercial and creative relationships, with clients such as
Banana Republic, American Express, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Studio
Museum in Harlem. In describing the mission of The Map Office, founder and creative
director Eddie Opara asserts, “Our process is to translate our clients’ needs into dynamic visual systems that can be presented at any scale. It is our goal to create seamless, natural experiences where any surface is a potential display and any gesture, a
potential command.” With investments in the commercial, institutional and research
facets of the design process, the studio has pioneered a unique approach centered
around educating clients on the fundamentals of visual communication.
As head designers to The Studio Museum in Harlem, The Map Office designs the
Museum’s seasonal catalogue, Studio, and Opara established the Museum’s visual
identity while working at 2x4, New York. The first Map Office-designed Museum exhibition catalogue was Energy/Experimentation, in which Opara premiered typeface
designer Joshua Darden’s typeface Freight. Other projects include Sophie, a design
resource for young women seeking to expand their knowledge of design, nutrition,
beauty and fashion. More recently, The Map Office has been designing a new website
for The Kitchen, a nonprofit experimental performance space in New York. The site
will launch later this year, and highlight Map’s integration of research and design, from
concept to completion. In the near future, The Map Office will venture in new directions, collaborating with a New York University film student to provide graphic support
for a short documentary about kites and possibly opening an office in Los Angeles.
Eddie Opara and cofounder George Plesko earned their MFAs in graphic design from
Yale University and founded The Map Office in 2005. As creative director, Opara’s
projects include designing and developing large-scale graphics installations, innovative software, web interfaces and graphics for clients such as Disney Imagineering,
Graphis, Surface and Elle. Ð

NW How do you navigate between the various demands of art and industry? How do
you translate client needs into visual systems and vice versa?
JD We synthesize a client’s aesthetic needs and functional requirements with what
we believe to be true about readability, aided by an awareness of how we and other
designers have addressed similar questions in the past. We then assemble up to a
dozen different ideas, relevant historical samples, contemporary graphic ideas and
fragments from our pile of speculative projects, all of which may engender a new
design, which comes with plenty of documentation and ongoing support.
NW What iconic projects, past and future, are most emblematic of your
studio’s mission?
JD I’m particularly pleased with a project we completed this spring for the redesign
of the Asian Tatler[OUOhW\Sa7beOabVSÆ`abbW[SeS^`]dWRSR]\SVc\R`SR^S`QS\b
of the typefaces for a publication, approximately a third of which were new designs
created expressly for Tatler’s use. We’re also working on a new website and our
Æ`ab^`W\bSRQObOZ]UcSO\ReSVOdSOP]cbOR]hS\\Sebg^STOQSTO[WZWSaW\RSdSZ]^ment for the general market.
Darden, arguably the pioneering independent font designer of African-American
descent, was born in 1979 in Northridge, CA, and never received formal training in
typeface design. Darden founded the Joshua Darden Studio in 2004 and currently
teaches typography at Parsons The New School for Design in New York. Ð

The Joshua Darden Studio is a premier typeface design studio with an innovative
approach to production that highlights the key intersections of art and industry. In
recognizing the ever-changing needs of readers in a digital age, the Joshua Darden
Studio employs market research and experimentation to forge a new design paradigm
in which function and expression coalesce into fresh typefaces that have a “solid raison d’être, free of post-rationalization or an unnecessarily romantic view of historical
norms.”1 Innovators such as Darden drive rather than follow commercial trends and
remain at the forefront of constantly evolving creative markets by fabricating custom,
distinct typographical aesthetics that serve the design needs of clients such as The
New York Times Magazine and The Studio Museum in Harlem.
Nico Wheadon For those of us in the dark, could you explain what typography is and
the ways by which it is considered an artistic process or practice?
Joshua Darden Typography is the design of the look and feel of text. For most of its
history, it has been associated with publishing and advertising. Before the 1880s, the
process of typeface design was physical and involved the actual sculpting of shapes
into steel with sharp handheld tools. I am a typeface designer, which means I draw
the alphabet, numerals, basic punctuation and at least two hundred other symbols
comprising a custom typeface, and then create a software program that is installable
on a user’s computer. Because typography is a means of communication, typeface
designers also tend to be interested in language and legibility and try to understand
the cultural connotations of different lettering styles.

Industrial designer Stephen Burks, who has developed concepts for Calvin Klein,
Estée Lauder, Herman Miller, Swatch and others, has nothing to hide. His newest
endeavor, the Handmade collection, enthusiastically (and quite literally) puts the
design “process” on view for the world to see. The indoor/outdoor paper furniture
series speaks to the idea of process as art. While some artists host restricted open
studio visits, Burks’s Tribeca suite is the ultimate open house. It serves as both studio
O\RUOZZS`ga^OQSSf^]aW\UbVS[ObS`WOZaPS\SObVbVSPSOcbgO\RbVSPSOcbWÆQObW]\
of the materials.
When describing the exhibition’s assembly, Burks loosely compares it to the making of
paper airplanes. Unlike most paper planes, though, this furniture is intricately crafted
02
and requires more than paper to create. Using an intense melding process, he comPW\Sa^ObbS`\SR^O^S`aVSSbaQ]Z]`SRT]O[V]bUZcSO\Re]dS\ÆPS`UZOaab]T]`[
functional tables, chairs and stools. “My work deals with the appropriate relationship
of things; the space between the narrative, materials, the object and the activity,”
Burks says.
This latest collection is a guided tour of Burks’s composite world of operation,
modernity and multidimensionality. It’s all about process, research and development. Architecture buffs survey end products, completed works. Construction is
isolated from the public. Not in Handmade. Burks wants audiences to experience
the complete undertaking, from conception to completion. Hence, the work and the
work-in-progress are equally valid and necessary parts of the collection.
Handmade was unveiled, in collaboration with 23 Suite Studio, during the 2007 New
York International Contemporary Furniture Fair. Ð

Look at any of Bryan Collier’s illustrations and you will experience an explosion of color
and vitality. The Maryland native combines watercolor, photographs and images cut
from magazines to create his collages. Collier has been drawing and painting all his
life; his talents were fully supported by his family, culminating in his choice to pursue
illustrating and painting as a career. He was, he says, “suddenly hit with a creative bug”

from his childhood, The Snowy Day and Whistle for Willie. It took seven years for
Uptown to be published, a lag Collier attributes to the time—then, diversity in story
lines and imagery was the exception, not the norm, in picture books. His work came
at a time when the publishing world was only beginning to open up. Collier went on to
illustrate many other children’s books, such as Rosa with Nikki Giovanni and Visiting
Langston with Willie Perdomo, both on his own and with other authors. All of Collier’s
works deal with the overarching themes of diversity, “transformation, redemption,

Youth Programs
The Studio Museum in Harlem is dedicated to creating
a safe environment for youths to express themselves
creatively. The Museum hosts free programs for high
school students outside the school environment. These
programs offer students opportunities to meet and
converse with prominent visual artists, express their
ideas through discussions, facilitate tours and hands-on
workshops and develop important communication and
critical thinking skills.
Nations, cities and even neighborhoods are all, to some
extent, “imagined communities.” The idea that we are
connected to each other overrides the logistic impossibility of actually knowing everyone who makes up these
various public forms. Despite the fact that we can’t
really and truly know everyone who shares our national,
[c\WQW^OZO\RZ]QOZWRS\bWÆQObW]\aeSOaac[S[S[bership in a mutually recognizable public sphere.
It’s no secret that we don’t do all of our living in private. An
equal share of our lived experience takes place in public.
While we are well aware of our roles in domestic life, we
are perhaps less conscious of our implicit involvement in
the making of public life. We activate public space, such as
gardens and parks, the minute we use them. We stimulate public buildings the second that we enter them. We
encourage public institutions by supporting them.
Creating public programs, much like creating public buildings and spaces, requires, above all else, the recognition of a public. Not unlike architect David Adjaye and
artist Bodys Isek Kingelez, who envision real or idealized
public environments, the Education and Public Programs
Department at the Studio Museum engages with a public
that is at once real and imagined. Public lectures, such
as The Artist’s Voice series; public readings, such as the
Books & Authors programs; concerts, such as the annual
JVC Jazz Festival; conferences, such as Here & Now: The
Second African-American Art Conference, co-hosted with
New York University and the W.E.B. DuBois Institute for
African and African American Research at Harvard University; tours for seniors; and school-based initiatives, such as
Expanding the Walls, reveal our ongoing commitment to a
public that we cherish, respect and empower.Ð
Youth Programs are supported by The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation; MetLife Foundation; Time Warner Inc.; Citigroup Foundation; the Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence
Trust; New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency; Bank of America; and the
Eathon Hall Memorial Fund.
