Herman Miller continues to promote the talents behind George Nelson’s office. They recently interviewed Lance Wyman, a graphic designer who started in the office shortly after he graduated from Pratt in 1960. The first large scale project he produced were the Pronto Posters advocating safety in factories for the Chrysler Pavilion during the 1964-65 World’s Fair. They were eventually mass produced by Howard Miller. His tenure at the office would lead Wyman to design the graphic language and logo for the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. Today, Wyman is known for his work in systems design for public spaces including airports, transit systems, and museums. He continues to work from his NYC office.
