Steve Frykholm

Vice President of Creative Design - Herman Miller

After teaching in Nigeria with the U.S. Peace Corps, Steve attended and graduated from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Herman Miller then hired him to be its first internal graphic designer in 1970.   An employee for 45 years, he has been largely responsible for Herman Miller’s image and graphic identity, its posters, annual reports, and other collateral literature.   “Recognized for crafting a body of corporate design work for Herman Miller that is as personable, memorable and innovative as the brand itself,” he received the AIGA Medal in 2010, the highest recognition from AIGA, the professional association for design. He's been recognized as an annual report legend in Graphis, and an American design icon in the 50th Anniversary Issue of Communication Arts.
