Dietmar R. Winkler

This series of images by Dietmar R. Winkler appeared in Graphis 71-72. It is perhaps the most perfect thing I have ever seen. I would love to reproduce this and print it up large format for my wall. Does anyone know where to find an original full size version? I am posting this from a KFC in Prague at the moment (sadly, it’s the only free WiFi spot in the area), will be posting some pictures soon.

Wow! I was just browsing through here and recognized the name! Dietmar was my college professor a couple of years back! It’s great to see his work on the web!

Wow is right! I had Dietmar as a college professor as well. Never thought I’d see his work here.

Dietmar was responsible, as I recall, for introducing the first MacIntosh computers at UMass Dartmouth back ’86 or ’87 changing the course of my history in a most positive way.As an older student (31) and a loose cannon I somehow got to hang with Dietmar when I was at”SMU”. I helped him stain his home studio building one summer and stake the railroad ties that lined his driveway into the ground with rebar the next. Unfortunately his dog died that summer. He paid me generously for the few days I helped – saving my sorry butt. I am ashamed to say that my lack of personal success in the visual design field (and cowardice)gave me some kind of piss-poor excuse not to stay in touch with him.

Like several of you, I have fond memories of Dietmar, in his role as Dean of the Arts college at Southeastern Mass. University (now UMass Dartmouth). He was a man large in my life, a mentor and a no-bullshit guy. As a budding designer, he got me my first paying art gig – an illustration for in Harvard Business Review back in ’82(?). I hope that “gem” is never found by anyone, or at least not shown to me. he got me my second paying gig too – a poster for the college’s opera company production “The Bosom of Tiresias.” That poster I think I still have, somewhere. I too have lost touch and am a little embarrassed not to have done more with the skills and the passion he saw – and fostered – in me.
