Terry was born in a year unimaginable to anyone conceived in the Internet age. He received his MFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. He served as Creative Director for the award-winning Boston Globe, as well as for Redbook, Esquire, tell, American Homestyle & Gardening, Time Warner Inc., and Time Inc. Custom Publishing. His clients have included the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Meredith Corporation, Disney Publications, The Criterion Collection, Rolling Stone, Pentagram, Tiffany, Sotheby’s, Lord Abbett, Mikimoto, Wachovia, and others.
His work has been written up in Print, Graphis, Idea, New American Design (Rizzoli), Ad Week, Folio, Communication Arts, and Novum Granhaus Graphic, and appears in the collections of the Library of Congress, the George Pompidou Museum, the Cooper-Hewitt, and the Museum of Modern Art. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and he has an on-going relationship with an email spammer named Man Do. Disclaimer: The above illustration of Terry is based on a photograph that was taken the year they invented film cameras.
T. Koppel Design features work that spans as much as twenty years. That’s a long time and a lot of art. As you can see above, we’ve branded ourselves in 12 different ways (and counting). Obsessive? Perhaps. But a versatile array of cohesive logos defines our studio and illustrates what we have to offer better than any single image or description. Like any successful design firm, we keep the client in mind. The question is: is the work unique? Does it merely stand out or is it memorable?
We believe that it’s what we do with the client in mind that sets us apart. With continuity and character, we deliver consummate print and digital publications, packaging and identities. We have exceptionally high standards and we work really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, hard. (And we have a sense of humor about it.) We love problem solving and we take pride not only in our work, but also in the success we bring to our clients. —From tkoppeldesign.com
