AIGA Presents Bill Thorburn
Mutual of Omaha
12th Floor Crisstal Room
33rd and Dodge, Omaha NE 68175
Graphic designer Bill Thorburn has been recognized in nearly every design journal in the industry. A sought after name from Tokyo to Tulsa, he has created a highly respected career without ever once taken a design class. Earning his Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from the Minneapolis College for Art and Design in 1984, Thorburn worked for smaller agencies until becoming design director for Dayton-Hudson’s-Marshal Fields. Shifting his focus, he then established The Thorburn Group, a company with an A-list client list, including Nike, Coke, ESPN, and Porsche.
As a guest of the Nebraska Chapter of AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Design), Thorburn will discuss his evolution and inspiration from over 20 years in the design business. Whether you work in the field of design or not, this event is an inside look at how determination and ingenuity reign supreme in creating a career.
