New Mexico-born, Idaho-raised, and New York City-based, Cardon Webb studied under Paul Sahre at the School of Visual Arts before working first, with Louise Fili at her New York studio, and subsequently with John Gall at Vintage Books. Currently he is the Assoc. Art Director of Broadway Books at Crown.
Cardon’s thesis project, Cardon Copy, a visual exploration of self-distributed street fliers and tear-offs, was honored with a solo exhibition at the Type Directors Club highlighting his project. He is also the curator of several TDC shows and auctions, including Beautifully Banal, and Posters of Fortune. The renowned designers and artists who have collaborated with Cardon on the TDC shows are too many to list, but include: Niklaus Troxler, Carin Goldberg, James Victore, and Alex Trochut.
Cardon had the privilege of working on-site with established contemporary artist David Salle on typographical explorations. His work at Vintage books has been praised by Design Bureau and Frame magazines, and his innovative designs for the complete works of Oliver Sacks were included in PRINT magazine’s best book covers of 2011.
In his non-existent spare time, Cardon recently completed a Post Graduate degree in Typeface Design from the Cooper Union (Type@Cooper). Outside of design Cardon enjoys rock climbing, skate and snowboarding, thrifting and raising his newly born daughter Cree and son Koos with his beautiful wife Kelly Sue.
