Getting to Know Daniel Pelavin

Dan Pelavin is one of those designer/illustrator/typographers who sees little distinction between these disciplines and considers them all integral to the same goal: communication. He has worked and trained with artists involving the entire spectrum of the graphic arts, including decorative, fashion, product, and technical illustrators, in addition to letterers, typographers, and graphic designers. In a recent interview with Creative Pro, Dan discusses how all of this experience has helped his work evolve to where it is today and where it might go in the future, where he gets his inspiration, and the nuts and bolts of the creative process. Be sure to take a look at the twenty-two type fonts he’s created with a brief history of how he developed each one. But be sure to take a look at his complete website, too; there is so much more to see!
