The first week of Fall classes are behind us and here at San Diego City College Graphic Design we start again by celebrating two bright comets.

Grateful to designers Clive Piercy and Margo Chase who have left us too soon. Their gifts and style reached far beyond Los Angeles as the ripple of their lives and work continue to inspire new generations of designers.  Design legends who took their profession to heart and took time to come to San Diego to speak to students and teachers.

Their commitment, work, grace and unforgettable style will live on in our graphic design history classes at San Diego City College. We count ourselves lucky to have experienced firsthand their fresh, unforgettable design drive. Condolences go out to Ann Field and our colleagues, students and friends at ArtCenter College of Design as well as their families. The Los Angeles and San Diego design communities join together in exalting two bright lights.
