Biography/Work Experience

Craig Frazier is an illustrating designer who has enjoyed a distinguished career since 1978. He opened his doors as Frazier Design in 1980 and built a practice designing corporate communication, annual reports and advertising. In 1996, he scaled down the design side of his practice to concentrate on illustration (and a few special design projects). Within two years he had developed one of the most distinct and recognized illustration styles in the country. Wit, irony, and simplicity have become the currency of the Frazier style. He is a frequent contributor to the NY Times and business publications likeTime 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.

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.
