Bill Cwiekalo | Graphic Design and Production

I have always been intrigued by type and the printed word. For as long as I can remember, logos especially, have caught my interest. As a young child, logos always spoke to me as the identity of the company to which they belong — the bright red of Coca Cola, the many colors of the NBC peacock — they were etched in my memory from the very moment I saw them. I knew what the Mobil logo was long before I even knew who Chermayeff and Geismar were! From a young age, I knew that these marks were important.
I have long been a fan of the printed page. From books by Richard Scarry and Dr. Seuss to TV Guide to a set of Funk and Wagnall’s Encyclopedias, the organization of information so that it is easily digestible never ceased to amaze me. I spent countless hours of my childhood reading and being fascinated by the way text, pictures and color interact with one another on a page.
At a very early age, I began to replicate all the things that I saw. It was hard to find a moment where I didn’t have a pencil, marker or paintbrush in my hand. Always observing, I studied every curve, every hue, and the intonation of each element that was used. To me, this was a language...a visual language...if you learn how to ‘speak’ it well enough, everyone will understand you.
