ICA and AIGA Present: Rick Valicenti
Founder and design director of Thirst/Chicago, a communication design firm devoted to art, function, and “real human presence,” Rick Valicenti was awarded the prestigious American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA) Medal in 2006 for his sustained contribution to design excellence and development of the profession. His works are included in the permanent collection of The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and were featured in its 2006 Triennial, Design Life Now.
For the past two decades, Rick has lent his time and energies to college and high school students in the form of workshops and personal critiques on the design industry, providing mentorship to a generation of students and inspiration to his colleagues.
