Cambridge, 2008 – John Maeda was my advisor when I studied at the MIT Media Lab back in the day. He's been at MIT for most of the past 20 years and become quite an institution. Starting this summer though, he will become President of RISD.
Before he leaves, he will give one last talk at MIT, which will be open to the public. The talk and party organizers asked all of Maeda's current and former students were to make posters for the event.
John has always reminded me of Max Headroom. He's a pop icon. He can see 20 minutes into the future. He hates Pepsi.
