Craig Frazier is an illustrating designer who has enjoyed a distinguished career since 1978. In 1996, he scaled down his design practice to concentrate on illustration and very specific design projects. Frazier’s early design career encompassed annual reports, corporate identity/communication, and advertising. His broad skill set as a communicator contributed to the development of one of the most distinct and recognized illustration styles in the country. Always witty and simple, Frazier’s work continually seeks the high-water mark for clarity and intelligence.
He is a frequent contributor to the NY Times and business publications like Time Magazine, Fortune, Bloomberg Business Week, Harvard Business Review, and The Wall Street Journal to name a few. Amongst his corporate clients are Adobe, American Express, Boeing, Chevrolet, Deloitte, MasterCard, Navigant, The Royal Mail, U.S. Postal Service, and United Airlines. Craig has created seven postage stamps including the 2006 Love stamp and the 2010/11 commemorative Scouting stamps.
Craig has published a 176-page monograph titled The Illustrated Voice, (Graphis Press, 2003.) He is also the author and illustrator of several children’s books.
“I like to think that one of the explanations for Craig Frazier’s expressive and memorable illustrations is that he has been—and still is—a designer. The search for a concept, and not putting anything down until a concept is found, is what makes the end product great work that communicates, often about difficult subjects.”
