Elliott Earls (1966) was appointed designer-in-residence and head of the 2-D design department at Cranbrook Academy of Art in July 2001. Upon graduation from Cranbrook in 1993, Earls’s experimentation with nonlinear digital video, spoken word poetry, music composition and design led him to form the Apollo Program. The Apollo Program’s commercial clients include Elektra Entertainment, Nonesuch Records, Scribner Publishing C., Elemond Casabella (IT), The Cartoon Network (UK), Imaginary Forces, Polygram Classics and Jazz, The Voyager Company and Janus Films. His type design is distributed worldwide by Emigre Inc. Earls’s posters entitled The Conversion of Saint Paul, Throwing Apples at the Sun, The Temptation of Saint Wolfgang, and She a Capulet are part of the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution.
