Michael Dyer founded Remake in 2004.
Prior to establishing Remake, Michael worked at several leading studios in Washington DC and New York, including Studio A, Spagnola & Associates, and Imagination.
Michael received his BFA in graphic design from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington DC. The Corcoran’s design program was based on the faculty’s own educational experience with such leading figures as Josef Albers, Armin Hofmann, Wolfgang Weingart, and Paul Rand. Courses at the Corcoran began with intense investigation into color theory, composition, letterform, semantics, and hand craft, which formed the basis for all subsequent advanced study. These fundamentals, rooted in the rich traditions of modernist design praxis, are evident in Michael’s approach to design.
Michael is a professor at Pratt Institute, where he has taught Graduate Seminar and has been a Graduate Thesis Advisor. He has also taught at Parsons the New School for Design and the City College of New York where he has led classes in typography, identity design, and general design studies from beginner to advanced levels. Michael has guest lectured at The Cooper Union, Pratt Institute, Parsons the New School for Design, and the Corcoran College of Art + Design, and has participated in lectures and panel discussions on graphic design theory, criticism, and education. He was also a contributing writer on the design forum Design Assembly, and is the founder of Selected Writings, a collection of essays, interviews, and discussions on aesthetics.
