David Reinfurt, Graphic Designer

Mr. Reinfurt received a BA in 1993 from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an MFA in graphic design in 1999 from Yale School of Art. He is an independent graphic designer, writer and editor in New York City. On the first business day of 2000, David formed O-R-G inc., a flexible graphic design practice composed of a constantly shifting network of collaborators. Together with graphic designer Stuart Bailey, David established Dexter Sinister in 2006, a workshop in the basement at 38 Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side. The workshop is intended to model a Just-In-Time economy of print production, running counter to the contemporary assembly-line realities of large-scale publishing. This involves avoiding waste by working on-demand, utilizing local cheap machinery, considering alternate distribution strategies, and collapsing distinctions of editing, design, production and distribution into one efficient activity. Dexter Sinister publishes the semi-annual arts magazine Dot Dot Dot. Mr. Reinfurt is a 2010 United States Artists Rockefeller Fellow in Architecture and Design and currently teaches at Princeton University. He was appointed critic in graphic design at Yale in 2011.
