Louise Sandhaus - The Big & Small of This & That: The Work of a Restless Designer

May 24th, 2004

A survey of work by a graphic designer and design educator, attempting to give coherence to a body of work that appears to lack a common denominator. The projects range from books, websites, software design, exhibition design and media design, to visual research and work of her students.
