Origami Gallery Guide by Ryan Gerald Nelson

Ryan Gerald Nelson ’07 first discovered the design department at the Walker Art Center during his time as a student at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

He participated in the institution's yearlong fellowship post-graduation and now works at the Walker as senior designer. He recently spoke with the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) about the first thing he ever designed for the Walker: a brief to design the graphic identity and gallery guide for a small solo exhibition called the Origami Gallery Guide

"I decided on a newspaper format for the gallery guide, rooted in the fact that we could fold it down and then nest the residency publication nicely within the fold, allowing them to live together as related but distinct pieces."
