In 1970, Herman Miller hired its first in-house graphic designer, Steve Frykholm. Among his initial assignments was the task of designing a poster to promote the company’s annual picnic. We couldn't help sharing these incredible pieces.
The now Vice President of Creative Direction reflects on his 45-year tenure at the company here, along with a video about his work and process. I especially loved hearing how works in collage before going to the computer. Always so interesting to hear how people work.
Below, a few photos from the company picnics. Don't they look so fun?
