Associate professor Roger Eriksen – graphic design and art history

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Production from Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, in 1978 and received a Master of Fine Arts in Environmental Art from the University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho, in 2002.I have over twenty years experience in computer graphics in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Canada, and the US.

I taught graphic design for over seven years at the Wellington Polytechnic School of Design (now part of Massey University) in Wellington, New Zealand. I currently teach all levels of graphic design and art history. I have been with ASU since the autumn of 2002.

The essence of form, color and texture are important elements to design and also to my artwork that relies on elements found in nature. Serendipity can enhance a design or artwork only if one is observant and sensitive to the subject matter. A well-designed logo can be as beautiful as the random patterns in nature.

I have a pragmatic approach to teaching graphic design. Assignments are primarily geared towards real world applications. I endeavor to incorporate projects from the community to give students the opportunity to advance their portfolios and enhance their future employment prospects.
