Hey David,
good luck with the new studios. I hope you will be coming to Montreal soon. I would very much like to meet the person that inspired me to become a designer. You had a big impact on me and I owe a lot to you.
take care,

I.D. Magazine 2005 Annual Design Review


“David Carson continues to be one of the world’s most distinctive
typographic voices–
much imitated, but never matched,”_ Ellen Lupton, ID MAG judge, june 2005
I.D. Magazine 2005 Annual Design Review
David Carson’s retrospective of his past five years, Trek features photography, film, and Web-based projects that shift between personal and commercial. Uniting the content is Carson’s distinctively fragmented and layered compositional approach: One example, a photograph of a sun-bleached shack and a notice board that reads “Carson Design inc,” is adorned with graphic sunbursts, leaving the reader to wonder how much of the image is real and how much constructed. The jurors commended the fluid, free-associative feel. “David Carson continues to be one of the world’s most distinctive typographic voices–much imitated, but never matched,” Lupton said. She added that the book, which is published by Gingko Press, “effectively presents Carson’ own work in his own style. That could be too much of a good thing, but in this case, it’s just right.”

Dear David Carson,
I just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed interviewing you at TypoBerlin for Typeradio very much. We are very pleased you had time for a little chat.
After some editing (no more than cutting it in workable pieces and taking out some glitches and coughs), the interview will be put on this website for everybody to download and/or listen to direct:
i will let you know when the interview is online.
thanks again and kind regards on behalf of Typeradio,
Donald Beekman

surfers journal


“Elsewhere in this issue, David Carson constructs a set of wet, dreamy illusions from scrap and grahix. Out of the lab that was SURFER magazine in the late 1980s, Carson sprung onto the back of the mainstream avant-garde(oxymoron?) where he succeeded beyond anyone’s expectations but his own. A surfer first beyond other personas, which in his target client New York media circles is a tres chic way to be precieved. Carsons spreads in this issue are more wallpaper installations than article, a stylized homage to his undying passion for wave riding. Even if you look closely, you might guess that its all a scam,
a la Dora, and one well pulled at that. Well, is it, or not?
Not for David. He stands on principle, damn the torpedoes.
