Meet the Judges

Post Typography

Originally conceived as an avant-garde anti-design movement, Post Typography specializes in graphic design, conceptual typography, and custom lettering/illustration with additional forays into art, apparel, music, curatorial work, design theory, and vandalism. Founding partners Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen have collaborated on design, art, and music projects for more than twelve years, beginning with hand-printed concert posters and progressing to higher profile design and illustration projects for clients such as the New York Times, U.S. Green Building Council, John Legend & The Roots, and Penguin Books. Post Typography's work has received numerous design awards and has been recognized by the Type Directors Club, Communication Arts, Print Magazine, the Society of News Design, and the Society of Publication Designers among many others. Strals and Willen teach classes in design and typography at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and are authors of Lettering & Type, a book on lettering and typeface design, published by Princeton Architectural Press.

Christian Helms

Christian is the founder of Helms Workshop, a strategic design and brand development studio. His clients range from national brands like Pabst Brewing, Southern Comfort and Jack Daniel's, to Texas standouts Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Austin Beerworks, as well as a host of bands including Spoon, Modest Mouse, The Hold Steady and Wilco.

Christian's work has received international recognition, publication and awards, and he lectures across the country. He's even been awarded a gold record from the Recording Industry Association of America, despite being unable to carry a tune. He lives in South Austin with his wife Jenn, son Hatley, and Boston-Pug mutt ScatterBug.

Marcia Lausen

Marcia Lausen is the Director of the School of Design at the University of Illinois at Chicago and founder of the Chicago office of Studio/lab. At UIC Marcia leads a renown faculty of professional designers who are establishing new programs at the forefront of design education and practice. At Studio/lab Marcia and her colleagues integrate four areas of communication design practice: identity, information, publication, and environment.

In 2000, Marcia played a leading role in a national election design reform initiative, which led to federal guidelines for the design of ballots and election materials. Her book, "Design for Democracy," was published in 2007 by the University of Chicago Press. Marcia received a BFA in graphic design from Indiana University and an MFA in graphic design from Yale University. She was named a 2004 Fast Company Master of Design.
