Richard Saul Wurman has said to me on many occasions that Peter Bradford is the most under-rated graphic designer in the United States. Folx in the field of IA recognize Bradford’s name from the cover of The Information Architects in 1996, where he’s credited as editor. RSW’s collaboration with Bradford on things around IA goes back to the visual presentation of the 1976 AIA Conference in Philadelphia, of which RSW was chairman. Bradford was also a contributor to the Posters Program at the International Design Conference in Aspen (IDCA) in 1972, of which RSW was (as ever), chairman.
A new friend, architect Ron Thomas, scanned these posters from AIA ‘76 for me, and I’m pleased to be able to share them with you. Also included here: the advance program that was mailed to AIA members prior to the conference.
