Sean King is a independent graphic designer who specializes in typeface design, lettering, editorial layout, information graphics, and interactive design. He also teaches typography and design to college students. In addition to independent projects, he is working with Gourmet Gaming on iOS games. His first game, Lines of Gold, is available now.
Prior to August 2011, Sean was Design Director, Corporate Communications at Landor Associates. In that role, he oversaw design standards and external communications globally for Landor. He managed a team that designed marketing materials and publications with web, multimedia, and print components. This role has given him valuable experience with cross-cultural and multi-lingual design.
Prior to joining Landor in 2003, Sean worked at a variety of advertising agencies in New York City. He has designed items as varied as print advertising, direct mail, point-of-sale displays, convention and trade show displays, stage backdrops, web sites, multimedia presentations, corporate identity materials, design guidelines, articles, newsletters, book covers and books. His first job out of design school was at a screen printing shop, which fueled his hands-on approach to design.
Sean’s love of the written word has fueled his career-long passion for type. He is keenly interested in both the history and future of typography and lettering.
Sean is based in New York City, where he has lived since 1995. He draws inspiration from the energy and multicultural atmosphere, as well as the rich design history that exists there.
