The Silent Language of Typography




The Storyteller's Art
A Retrospective of the Work of
Designer Kit Hinrichs 

February 27 — May 3, 2009 

Over the past 40 years, Kit Hinrichs' influence on America's graphic landscape is familiar across a broad spectrum of media. His design direction can be seen in annual reports, magazines, exhibitions, signage and environmental programs, catalogs (including "Design Within Reach" and "Restoration Hardware"), recruitment books for such educational institutions as McGeorge School of Law and USC Admissions, and identity programs for such diverse entities as Musak, The California Academy of Sciences, and Napa Style. 

Other examples of his design work include exhibits at the Experience Music Project in Seattle and environmental graphics for Boudin Sourdough Bakery museum and restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. 

Hinrichs is also the author of several books, including "TypeWise," about the narrative use of typography, and "Long May She Wave," featuring his vast collection of Stars and Stripes memorabilia that have been exhibited across the country. 

An alumnus and Trustee of Art Center (Advertising, 1963), Hinrichs is the San Francisco partner in the international design firm, Pentagram. "The Storyteller's Art," includes over 200 examples of his work.
