As founder and creative director, Clif has nurtured a highly collaborative environment that emphasizes a process based on research, sound strategy, and thorough exploration. This inclusive approach yields compelling communications that effectively articulate and reinforce the message or product. Clif has taught at Rhode Island School of Design and Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and frequently lectures at schools and design organizations around the country. He has served as AIGA Boston vice president and was honored as the recipient of their 2005 Fellow Award. Reflecting his love of music and album art, Clif’s book 1000 Music Graphics was published by Rockport in May of 2008, and he is also curator of POSTGIG, a traveling exhibit of contemporary music posters.
