One of the best people I’ve had the chance to work for is, Chris Froeter from Froeter Design. He has a great sense of balance in design and a very keen eye for the smallest of details. Froeter Design is also one of the best graphic design studios in Chicago. But above all else, he is the coolest person in the design world. Everyone I’ve interviewed with has asked
Interviewing for a Graphic Design position coming out of school can be a bit nerve wrecking. I’ve interviewed and worked at many design studios and advertising agencies in Chicago.

It’s quite refreshing, as I have ranked cannon high up on my best wordmarks of all time list and it’s nice to easily find some info directly from them. The pages created for the logo tell me they are aware of the success of the Canon logo design and about us logo and identity designers looking for some info on their logo design. They’ve even
Current product offerings from manufacturing companies are at mature states. Think about cars, TVs, furniture, shoes, computers and pretty much anything you can buy.
