R. Roger Remington was a professor at Rochester Institute of Technology for fifty-seven years. A collection of writings, a Festschrift, published to honor his life as a designer, educator and scholar, is a perfect tribute. It includes essays and visual messages from 57 contributors from 8 countries who are representative of the scores of people he touched. Roger is a historian and a futurist. He constantly suggests new ways of using archives. He maintains a long list of people he wants to invite to speak. He has new books to write on his desk. He studies the past but lives looking ahead. He signs his emails, “onward”. This book is a part of RIT’s celebration of R. Roger Remington, the Vignelli Distinguished Professor of Design. This book includes only a small, representative sample of Roger’s colleagues and accomplishments. Roger’s legacy continues to be written by his distinguished colleagues at RIT and the generations he has nurtured around the world. Includes a foreword by Michael Bierut.
