Mike Salisbury’s Wild West

a-Levis
Come learn from L.A.’s legendary art director Mike Salisbury as he discusses his diverse career selling sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. It’s next Thursday evening, November 15th at 7:30 in Art Center’s L.A. Times Media Center on the Hillside campus. It’s part of my Design History 2 classes, and it’s free and open to the community.

Paula Scher called Mike “an earth-shattering, powerful designer of important imagery.” With fifty years of experience in art direction and branding, and with clients like Steven Spielberg and LucasFilms, A+M and MGM, Levi’s and Gotcha, Disney and Playboy, Honda and Volkswagen, his enormous influence on the editorial, advertising, music, and motion picture fields is inestimable. He’s also earned a “bad boy” reputation for having created one of the world’s most recognized brand images, the notorious Joe Camel.

Mike’s presentation, titled “… the Wild West Years,” will cover his groundbreaking formative work, which includes his iconic, concept-driven publication designs for West, Surfer, Rolling Stone, and Francis Ford Coppola’s City. He’ll also share anecdotes about Michael Jackson, Apocalypse Now, and other celebrity stories.
