The graphic design faculty at ECU has a variety of backgrounds and interests but we share a commitment to craft, typographic detail, and the intellectual analysis of design. The faculty is award winning, widely published, and internationally known.
Additionally, guest artists, designers, and critics visit East Carolina University. In recent years, designer/poster artist James Victore, letterpress printers Jim Sherraden (of Hatch Show Print) and Amos Kennedy, art director Patrick Flynn, and illustrators Sue Coe, David McLimans, and Kyle Webster have given talks and done workshops. ECU regularly hosts guest artists in related areas such as photography and printmaking and design alumni including Todd Coats and Matt Muñoz visit frequently.
