Design
The Twin Cities design community is every bit as diverse, skilled, and distinguished as its artistic community. Our architectural heritage stretches back to Cass Gilbert and keeps producing innovative and iconoclastic builders, from Ralph Rapson to Sarah Susanka. Graphic design, on its own and allied with our legendary advertising community, has given our towns a whole range of sophisticated visual identities, from large ad campaigns to extremely cool band posters. Web design is currently building on that graphic legacy and taking it in amazing new directions. And a rich heritage of crafts, including distinguished pottery traditions, has made the Twin Cities a national center of the practical arts.
