The American graphic design Chris Carson who is also In fact a director and a surfer is well known for the use of his experimental typography in his innovative magazine designs. Mr carson directed the art for the magazine Ray Gun in which he used a lot of typographic and layout styles which is what he is best known for. In a particular issue of Ray Gun Carson only used a font named Dingbat which to many peoples surprise is a font containing only symbols. However the whole text was actually published in a legible font at the back of the same issue. David Carson left Ray Gun in 1995 to found his own studios David Carson Design in new york city. After David Carson had his own studios he began to attract major clients from all over America these include Pepsi, Ray Ban, Nike, Microsoft, Budweiser and Giorgio Armani.

David Carson inspires me to go from having a plan simplistic design to adding some extra attention to deatail throughout my magazine. especially on the front cover.
