2005 SEGD Fellow

Richard Poulin is a designer, educator, author, and artist living in Southern California. His forty year career is based on a generalist approach to graphic, environmental, interior, and exhibition design, dividing his time between professional practice and academia. He is a recipient of a research grant in design history from the Graham Foundation; a recipient of a Fellow from the Society of Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD), the profession’s highest honor; and his work is in the permanent design collections of the Denver Museum of Art, Letterform Archive, Library of Congress, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

Richard is also the author of several books on graphic design, typography, and design history which have been translated into eight languages and used by students and practitioners worldwide. His new book, a monograph on the life and work of Rudolph de Harak—Rational Simplicity: Rudolph de Harak: Graphic Designer— traces the rich and varied career of one of the masters of American mid-century modernist graphic design and will be released on November 1, 2022, by Thames & Hudson (London).

As an artist, his most recent solo exhibition, entitled “Visual Essays: Elemental Singularities” was at the Brian Marki Fine Art Gallery in Palm Springs, California. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and is in the collections of several private collectors.
