Joe has been around. He’s old. He’s got tenure. He graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 1970 as a fashion illustrator and quickly morphed into a graphic designer. As a principal of Klauber/Roberts, Joe was lucky enough to work with George on corporate identification programs, annual reports and financial literature, retail store visual merchandising, trade advertising, publication design and publicity campaigns for AT&T, Ortho Pharmaceuticals, CIGNA, AIG, SuperStructures, Abrams Publishers, Aperture, Yale University Press, and the Josef and Anne Albers Foundation.
Indentured as a professor and administrator at Pratt Institute since 1981, he has lead courses at all levels of the BFA Communications Design program. Joe also served as Chairperson of the department from 1994 to 2005 and as President of the Academic Senate from 1997 to 2001. That’s enough.
