Poster Works for FIT: Program

This year marks the fourteenth anniversary of the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Visiting Artist Program, a lecture series that brings distinguished designers of our time together with students, faculty, and design professionals in a public forum.

To announce each lecture, we designed posters that are clear and bold, that simultaneously allows the message to cut through a visually cluttered environment, while responding to the school’s budgetary constraints.

These posters, celebrated in several exhibitions, have won numerous awards, and are part of private and public design collections worldwide.

The posters can be viewed and purchased at

Rocco's beautiful series of posters is a crescendo of intensity and expression.

—Massimo Vignelli

Rocco is a typographer and what he does is quite extraordinary.

—Ivan Chermayeff

I've admired the bold yet economical posters that Rocco has designed for FIT's long-running visiting artist series. They recall an early Modernist time, yet are very contemporary.

—Steven Heller
