Creative Inspirations: Stefan G. Bucher, Designer, Illustrator, and Writer
Video duration: 0s 2h 15m Appropriate for all Updated Aug 25, 2011


Meet a truly monster graphic designer, Stefan G. Bucher. Stefan's projects range from his Daily Monsters, to the Daily Letter on the PBS television show, The Electric Company, to CD designs for Sting and Whitney Houston, products for the Echo Park Time Travel Mart (featuring canned mammoth chunks), to writing and illustrating his latest book, You Deserve A Medal: Honors on the Path to True Love. Stefan is a prolific artist who is seemingly obsessed with finding impressive new ways to put ink on paper. Follow his journey from his first illustrations for The Donaldist (a magazine dedicated to the exploration of Donald Duck comics), through Art Center College, Portland agency Wieden+Kennedy, Madonna's Maverick Records, and finally his own company, 344 Design.

Bonus Feature: Join us at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, where Stefan is interviewed by writer and creative strategist Terry Lee Stone after a screening of his film.



(upbeat electronic music) - I always enjoy having that little piece of art that wasn't there before.

Whether it be the catalogs or my books or the monsters. Working all night on a drawing and then coming back the next morning and seeing that piece there and going, "Okay, that wasn't there before I got to it." That's reversing the chaos of the world within that rectangle. And I think that's why I'm attracted to design and illustration.

It just felt good to do. I mean, I just enjoyed having drawn something. That was always my thing, was just to get the ideas out.
