For over 40 years, Primo Angeli built an international reputation for his work in packaging, corporate identity and poster design from his San Francisco office. His clients include global brands like Coca-Cola and DHL, and international events like the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. None of this meant he was above designing for regional or local icons like the Boudin Bakery, Henry Weinhard’s or Mariani.

Join the Nevada Museum of Art and AIGA Reno Tahoe, the professional organization for design, in welcoming Primo and Deanie Angeli in a conversation about life before Design, walking the fine line of art and commerce and other Olympic stories.
