07.31.12 Patrick Redmond led an initiative to provide a list of past presidents and chairmen of AIGA Minnesota – also including the years when the chapter was known as MGDA, the Minnesota Graphic Designers Association – on the AIGA Minnesota website. As a result, and as a result of the interest and involvement of others in AIGA Minnesota, the organization's website now includes a list of its Past Presidents and Chairmen under "About" on the main menu. The current list, with respective term years, is the result of consolidating earlier lists compiled by other individuals – including Ginny Shea, Heather S. Olson, D.A.R., and others – as well as Patrick's own, independent efforts. Patrick was the fourth person to lead the organization – when it was known as MGDA, the Minnesota Graphic Designers Association – following the terms of Tim Larsen, Jim Johnson, and Peter Seitz. With some 1,300 members, AIGA Minnesota has become one of the largest chapters of AIGA, "the professional association for design."TM The list is in a very preliminary, working version... a work in progress. When the list is more refined, links to biographical career information for all chairmen and presidents would be included – similar to preliminary examples provided – ideally based on links provided by respective presidents and chairmen. This is the first time – July 2012 – that the AIGA Minnesota website has listed the past presidents and chairmen as a menu item. To Patrick, and others, the list had seemed conspicuous by its absence. For further information, contact the current Director of Communications at AIGA Minnesota.

04.13.08 St. Paul Pioneer Press Business Section, Sunday, April 13, 2008, Vol. 159, No. 352, Business, Section D, p. 3D [Note: Editor: Katy Hubbard, Pioneer Press]: "Executive Read Pioneer Press Article Last Updated: 04/12/2008 03:13:33 AM CDT. Who: Patrick Redmond, creative director/designer/owner, Patrick Redmond Design, St. Paul. What:"AGI: Graphic Design Since 1950," edited by Ben and Elly Bos. Why: "Design and the graphic arts have become important to competitive business and the Minnesota (and global) economy. AGI is the Alliance Graphique Internationale, a select group of 360 designers (2007 figures)..." Compare published version with the following original version submitted by Patrick Redmond to Pioneer Press: The following represents the original February 5, 2008 submission for the St. Paul Sunday Pioneer Press Business Section "Executive Read" prior to editing (for space, etc.) by Pioneer Press. "Executive Read. Who: Patrick Redmond, M.A., Creative Director/Designer/Owner, PatrickRedmondDesign.com, St. Paul. What: "AGI: Graphic Design Since 1950" Edited by Ben and Elly Bos. Why: Design and the graphic arts have become important to competitive business and the economy. "AGI" is the "Alliance Graphique Internationale", a select group of "360 AGI designers [in 2007], in a world of 6 billion human beings." This beautiful book features examples of not always beautiful graphic design [often 3 works, such as posters, book covers, logos, packaging, type design, and postage stamps, per designer] and brief biographical profiles of "some 600 designers who have become members of the Alliance Graphique Internationale, since the organization was founded in 1951." "You cannot apply for AGI, a godfather proposes you and the international jury votes you in - or not" and "even an international professional reputation, in itself, is still no guarantee" a designer will be accepted to AGI. Unlike the national "professional association for design" with more than 21,000 members, AIGA, the American Institute of Graphic Arts, of which there is a Minnesota Chapter, a chapter I am a former president (1979-1980) of, members of AGI "represent 28 countries on six continents"... "AGI is an extraordinary 'club' of highly qualified designers" and is not a "professional organization." Many of these designers "have gained a reputation in a wide cultural hinterland over the years" and "some have acquired the status of 'Olympic Champion'." "So much work of this high quality has never before been displayed in one [800-page] single volume." While this book chronicles a cross section of international graphic design - and designers - over the decades, executives and others in business may find the sections "The 1960s: Dawn of Graphic Design" featuring Chase Manhattan™, Westinghouse™ and Reuters™ logos and "Corporate Identity: The Designers' Playground of the [20th] Century" featuring logos and trademarks ranging from Mobil™, the International Woolmark™ and Paris' Centre Pompidou to JCPenney™ and Esprit™ to be of particular interest. Other essays provide various insights into the field. Of note, at least two Minnesota-born designers are represented in this book: Charles Spencer Anderson and the late P. Scott Makela. Also of note [pr added 04.2008], Andrew Blauvelt, Design Director and Curator of architecture and design at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, is a recently elected member of AGI."

03.31.08 35 Years Ago: Patricia Hampl piece published in Preview magazine makes connection between Main Street and Patrick Redmond's work as artist-in-residence in Eagle Bend, Minnesota. Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) author of the novel Main Street (1920), a story set in fictional Gopher Prairie, Minnesota, based on Sauk Centre, Minnesota, was the first American to be awarded the Nobel prize in Literature (1930). Lewis is the subject of the biography Sinclair Lewis: Rebel from Main Street by Richard R. Lingeman, a 688-page book published by Random House; 1st edition (January 15, 2002), (recently read by graphic designer, artist, and author Patrick Redmond, of Patrick Redmond Design). Eagle Bend is a small town in rural Minnesota, approximately 35 miles north of Sauk Centre, Minnesota, on U.S. Highway 71. Patrick Redmond was Eagle Bend’s full-time artist-in-residence and a resident of Eagle Bend during the early 1970s. Author Patricia Hampl made reference to both Sinclair Lewis’s Main Street and Patrick’s work as an artist-in-residence in Eagle Bend in a feature story she wrote for Minnesota Educational Radio’s Preview magazine, published 35 years ago. See Hampl, Patricia. "Self Portrait of a Rural Town," Preview, Magazine of Minnesota Educational Radio, Saint Paul, Vol. 7, No. 3, March 1973, p. 4-5. [Note: "Minnesota Educational Radio" became "Minnesota Public Radio"; Preview becameMinnesota Monthly of Minnesota Public Radio.] Also of note: Patrick Redmond later attended courses in creative writing and memoir taught by Patricia Hampl. Among other distinctions, Patricia Hampl has since become a Regents Professor at the University of Minnesota.
