Eve Faulkes

Professor of Graphic Design

West Virginia University

Professional Profile

I have been the coordinator of Graphic Design at WVU since 2008 and was named the J Bernard Schultz Endowed Professor of Art in 2012. I keep a freelance business going, and write about design and teaching, presenting papers at conferences every year. I am quite interested in design for social good, design that can improve our political system, and how social psychology can be leveraged to help design methods. I also have a letterpress in my livingroom and make artists books.
