Scope and Content of Collection

The Kellen Design Archives' Designer Files were assembled by Kellen Design Archives staff between approximately 1994 and 2008 from a variety of sources (on occasion new files continue to be added). Subjects are typically Parsons graduates, visting critics, lecturers or faculty. Folder contents may include clippings, work samples, ephemera, slides, and such printed materials as business cards, postcards, and pamphlets. Information about the designers in these files ranges from as little as one item to multiple folders. For each letter of the alphabet, general folders contain information about multiple designers by last name or common business name.
