George Giusti (1908–1990) trained in Milan, and emigrated to the United States in 1939. Giusti had a twelve-year design association with Geigy Pharmaceuticals.
In addition he produced several important cover designs for books, record covers and magazines including Time, Fortune and Holiday. The Giusti collection was donated to RIT by the designer’s wife, Margot Joachimsthal Reiche Giusti in 1993. In 2005, the National Endowment for the Arts awarded RIT a grant to process and organize the collection.
