Overview

Iconic designer Inge Druckrey is renowned for bringing her European design sensibility to the United States in the mid 1960s. Her work is widely published, and resides in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, National Design Museum, and Museum für Gestaltung.

As a designer, Druckrey has a classically trained eye. In this documentary, our own picture of Druckrey is drawn through the stories shared by former students and peers, alongside her own insights into topics such as composition, form, and the elemental properties of drawing.

Professor Emerita of Graphic Design at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Druckrey has taught at Kunstgewerbeschule in Krefeld, Yale, Rhode Island School of Design, and the University of Hartford. Her clients include Scholastic Inc., the Schoenberg Institute, IBM, and New Jersey Transit. Through the lens of her own formal education, Druckrey teaches us the art of training the eye to see, and outlines her approach and methods towards the graphic arts, including typography and poster design.
