The Designer as Author
The Designer as Author is
not a concept from  Steve Heller, senior art director at
the New York Times, Design critic
[80 books published about graphic design] and initiator of the MFA/Design
'The Designer As Author' Educational Programme.

...actually, the term appeared in print with national distribution long before Mr. Heller named his MFA program after the term. In 1996, I (Steven McCarthy, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota) co-curated (with Cristina de Almeida) "Designer as Author: Voices and Visions", an exhibition of such work. See: , and an article I wrote for Eye magazine, v. 41 for original sources.

Also check out the MFA website to get an impression of where some beat goes on. + Just read my contribution to Steve's new book about Teaching Typographic Literacy [the education of a typographer] at the Writings section.
