Over one year ago, when Joshua Ege, Assistant Professor of Visual Communication at Texas A&M University-Commerce, approached Margo Chase, founder, Chase Design Group, to be the first female designer featured in the Viscom Gallery, she told him she would be honored. After an aviation accident took her life in July 2017, the Chase Design Group team continued her legacy by making the exhibit happen.
"Margo Chase: Chasing the Bright Light" exhibit officially opened on March 23, 2018, and will run through May 2, 2018. The exhibition is a celebration of Chase's lifelong drive to create in many different forms and styles from her early graphic designs for iconic recording artists such as Cher, Prince, and Madonna and entertainment properties Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bram Stoker’s Dracula to global branding assignments for Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo, Califia Farms, Starbucks and more.
At the opening reception, Chris Lowery, CEO, Chase Design Group, who worked Chase for 20 years, spoke about her drive, curiosity and dedication to her craft. “Once she came up with an idea, she was tenacious and committed to seeing it through. That dedication is now part of the Chase Design Group culture. It’s always about not giving up and helping each other to get the best idea to the finish line,” he said.
