Devin Symons was our designer for 2014-2015, and you can see his work in the posters for the Geographies series, in our cards and banners, and many of the images on this site. His inspiration for this design came from antique maps, and the way maps express time and emotion. His bold use of color brings an antique map from Vienna or London to the contemporary world.
Devin completed his MFA at American University in 2015. He has a very interesting habit: when he goes to a reading he often makes a sketch of the writer as he or she reads, and then gives the drawing to them. The images are beautiful and so expressive, simple gifts that capture the moment.
