Keith Godard

Yale Film Festival by Keith Godard, 1968.

We’re so pleased to add the work of Keith Godard to the Archives. Godard, a renown designer of public art and exhibitions, and a pioneer of the teaching of graphic design history, is the Principal of StudioWorks and a faculty member in SVA’s MFA Design department. We’re kicking off with seventeen of his posters. A Godard poster is an interactive affair – textural and conceptual. There’s plenty more to come from Godard, including books, exhibition design, and wayfinding, but here’s a sample of his exuberant posters, always pressing against the boundaries of the paper.

American Institute of Architects, American Institute of Planners, American Society of Landscape Architects, Art Directors Club of Los Angeles. A Picnic in Los Angeles, 1972.

Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture and Planning. Urban Focus: A Festival of Films and Video Tapes, 1975.

Evolution of the Poster 1850 to the Present: An Inspirational Talk With Examples by Keith Godard, 1997.

New School University. Parsons School of Design, Goethe Institute. Nach Berlin Kapital Architectures, 1998.

5th Annual Lake Placid Film Festival, 2004.
