ENLIVENED GRAPHIC DESIGN
See Nancy's Portfolio
The Elizabethans had Romeo and Juliet. The Victorians had Heathcliff and Cathy. As for mid-century moderns, they had “The Dot” and “The Line.” The 1963 Academy Award winning animated short, The Dot and The Line, shows the power and value of graphic design by turning simple shapes into compelling characters. A story of unrequited love, the film stirs audiences to care for a hapless, lovesick line. Recalling the emotional power of graphic designs, Nancy Goodman Lawrence imbues her organic shapes with playful personalities. The interactions between Nancy’s forms show that even the most compelling stories can be told in the simplest of terms.
