From the Collection of Steve Reoutt (1938-2008).
A longtime California College of the Arts Graphic Design faculty member (41 years to be exact) and professor emeritus, Reoutt also was a book illustrator, curator, painter, and genuinely appreciated and loved member of the CCA community.
He was born in 1938 in Shanghai to Russian parents. He came to the United States when he was just 12-years old. He went on to co-found the San Francisco chapter of the AIGA, including serving a nine-year board position as design historian. In 2001 Reoutt received the AIGA Fellowship award for "personal and professional contributions to raising the standards of excellence within our design community." He passed away May 14, 2008.
