Jennifer Morla is a graphic designer who founded her studio, Morla Design, in 1984. With over 300 awards of excellence, she has been recognized by virtually every organization in the field of visual communication. She is the 2010 recipient of design's most honored award, the AIGA Medal. Jennifer’s work is part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. SFMoMA has acquired 50 pieces of her work for their permanent collection. She has been honored with solo design exhibitions at both SFMoMA and the DDD Gallery in Japan and is an adjunct professor at California College of the Arts. At Workshop Residence, Jennifer investigates typographic forms as applied to cut industrial wool felt and screen printed textiles. Jennifer used three typefaces in her work: Blackletter, Avant Garde, and Eames Century Modern. Blackletter is Gutenberg's original moveable type from the 15th century, avant Garde references Herb Lubalin's original creation as the masthead for the pornographic magazine of the same name, and the Eames Century Modern asterisk celebrates the legendary, mid-century, designers, Charles and Ray Eames.
