About: Daryl Joseph Moore | bfa mfa frsa
Born and raised twelve miles west of New York City in Newark, N.J., Daryl graduated from the nation’s first high school of visual and performing arts, known as Arts High. He holds a Master of Fine Arts in Advertising Design
from Syracuse University’s School of Visual and Performing Arts and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Communication Design from Pratt Institute. He is an elected Fellow of the RSA, London, England and is the former Chair of the Art and Design program at Montclair State University. His professional background encompasses published Illustration, Creative Direction in Advertising, and Senior Art Direction in design, branding and new product development and promotion.
Appointed Founding Dean of the College of the Arts at California State University, Stanislaus in 2007, he is the author of “Design and the Creative Process” — an examination of professional practice from the unique perspectives of internationally known designers, published in 2007 by Thomson Delmar Learning. The motivation for the book is a direct result of experiences in the classroom, both as a student and as an instructor — as well as in professional practice over a career spanning multiple disciplines in visual communications. “There was a void in available text and information about Designers, which still exists today — specifically: how “Creative Thinkers” go about the business of Design — what motivates them, their beginnings and challenges, as well as successes — and importantly, where they go for inspiration. Design and the Creative Process begins optimistically, with the goal of filling that void.”
Daryl is a Visiting Scholar at the Schools of Design at East China Normal University and Shanghai Institute of Technology respectively since 2006. Additionally, he was an Invited Foreign Design Expert, consulting on the Branding and Promotion of the Shanghai Expo “Better City Better Life” campaign by the Chinese government in 2010, and continues to lecture in both Asia and Europe on the relevancy of Design, Professional Practice and its impact on our global society. In 2013, he was appointed Dean of the College of the Arts and Communication at William Paterson University.
