Look for big changes in our increasingly creaky website as soon as we can break away from work to do work about work. Circular? Never.

Charles Gibbons is a Massachusetts-based graphic designer and educator. Everybody calls him “Chuck”. Everybody.

He received a BA in English literature from Boston University, studied design for three years at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and holds an MFA in graphic design from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Professionally, he spent the ’90s as a designer for the University of Minnesota, as assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin, and teaching at RISD. In 2001, he joined the Library of Congress, where he oversaw the rebranding of the U.S. Copyright Ofice. In 2007, he returned to work with educational clients and opened his own practice the following year. A self-described type geek, he’s designed award-winning fonts for both the retail market and individual clients.

When he’s not here, Chuck teaches courses in information design, typography, type design, publication design, and design systems at Tufts University’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and in the Communication, Arts, and Humanities program at University of Maryland University College.
