Views 86: the art faculty: University of Wisconsin--Madison, Elvehjem Museum of Art, 15 March-4 May 1986
Don P. Overmyer [Insight; HCfP]
Don P. Overmyer, Assistant Professor The form that a successfully designed object takes should be determined by its content and intended use. Through the study and practice of graphic design, the visual communication of ideas and infor- mation can be made more effective by presenting them in an appropriate, more aesthetically pleasing form. Design is a process that states the problem, recog- nizes the purpose, and organizes the com- ponents. This process involves the formal principles of composition-line, form, scale, rhythm, and color, the technologies of type- setting and printing, the art of typography, and most importantly, ideas and creativity. Don Overmyer joined the art faculty in the autumn of 1985. He is from Louisville, Ken- tucky, received a B.A. from Indiana Univer- sity in 1976. and an M.FA. from Yale Uni- versity in 1984.
