Biography/Work Experience

Bruce Holdeman founded 601 Design, Inc in 1987, an international award winning graphic design studio providing full-service graphic design services focused primarily on magazines, books, e-pubs, logos, brand development and illustration. He has been a freelance art director for State Legislatures magazine for nearly 30 years, illustrating over 300 covers. Bruce graduated from Colorado State University (CSU) in 1981, mentored by his Graphic Design professor, John Sorbie and his friend Eugene Hoffman (Graphis cover illustrator #125 and #227), while doing his internship at Bob Coonts Design Group in Ft. Collins Colorado. At that time, CSU hosted the Colorado International Poster Exhibition (still does), which gave Bruce first hand contact with international poster designers that shaped his design style to this day. Bruce is currently working on his own in Denver while finishing his Masters in Development Practice at Regis University.
