Spotlight: Alan Dye



I have been anticipating today for awhile now because one of our most celebrated alums, Alan Dye, is returning to campus to participate in an ongoing lecture series. He graduated from Syracuse Communications Design in 1997 and has since worked for branding agencies such as Landor Associates and Oglivy & Mather, as well as being Design Director at Kate Spade (!) and his current position is Creative Director for Apple.

Check out his interview for Design Matters with Debbie Millman, which explores his processes as a designer and his career path. I love hearing him talk about one of our professors who still teaches in the program.
