David Carson

He is an American designer, art director and surfer. He is best known for his innovative magazine design, and use of experimental typography. He work as art director for some magazine. Moreover, his widely imitated aesthetic defined the so-called “grange typography” era. Carson’s style of typographic experimentation influenced the development of the deconstruction style of design and a whole new generation of designers. Some is chaotic, abstract and distinctive. His project often related to music, pop  culture. 2024660.jpg

I like his style. His work is so strong and eye catching. I think it is great to combine images and letters to make them harmonious. Especially, I liked the poster which cuts the picture in half and the half is the letter, and the image is in the letter. I also liked that he only portrayed images in letters.
