Inspired design student wondering how Mr. Carson went from high school teacher to culture changing icon. ハWhat happened to change your career path. I’m trapped in corporate America and aspire to create with subjective freedom.
Short answer desired, I know you’re busy and would be honored to receive a response and won’t be deraired if I don’t.
Thank you for you work Mr. Carson, you have made a believer out of us all.

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.”
