UH GAP, in conjunction with the University of Houston Graphic Design Program, invites you to attend the 2021 Main Event, part of the Minor Design Speaker Series. Special guest Bud Rodecker, Co-Founder of Span Studio, will be speaking and we will also be awarding the 2021 UH Graphic Design Student Scholarships.
Span is a studio crossing the boundaries of communication design in all mediums. Their work is focused on challenging expectations with wit, logic, and a playful spirit. Blending typographic discipline with fearless expression, they elevate the role of the visual message in both culture and community. Span takes the long view—in every gesture and every project. They see their design practice as a research and development lab both for their clients’ needs and for their own inquiry. Span strives to discover innovative ways to increase impact in the art of communication through imagination and experimentation. They experiment with new models for sustainability that weave together equality, inclusiveness, and environmentalism as an ethos for success in both their work and their studio.
Co-founders John Pobojewski and Bud Rodecker have 25 years of shared experience shaping brand strategy and design for high-profile clients in the design, cultural, and civic communities. They are joined by a team of uniquely talented designers, photographers, 3D animators, illustrators, programmers, musicians, typographers, and educators. They believe this diverse set of viewpoints energizes their thinking, drives originality, and makes their work better. Click here to find out more about Span Studio.
