Russell Shaw
 

Russell is a New York Times best-selling book illustrator and designer, and his work has received PRINT Magazine’s ‘Best In Class’ designation for hand-lettering, as well as PRINT’s Regional Design Awards, HOW Design’s Marketing and Promotion Awards, and recognition in AIGA, The Dieline, the Social Good Design Awards, and more.

His clients include Porsche, Target, Tesla, Kid President, New York Magazine, AMC’s Breaking Bad, HarperCollins, DesignArmy, The Village Voice, Neenah Paper, and more.

“I am a maker and a builder. I love working with individuals who see the world as something to contribute to rather than take from. My favorite work is helping people take their wild ideas and turn them into tangible experiences — and bringing creativity, impact, and delight into each experience that is made along the way. To me, the beauty of brand identity design is not in any one single expression of the work, but in the magic of how it gains momentum when it all fits together.
