Fjord Fika: We chat with Marc English
Episode 30: Marc English is a designer, teacher and author based in Austin, Texas. Marc’s career has run the gamut – from design boutiques to museum exhibit and commercial television design. He turned to freelancing in 1993 and has since worked with both institutional and corporate clients as well as on public projects.
In this Fika break, we talk to Marc about what made him want to be a designer, his work as a teacher, and his experience with the AIGA, which includes establishing the Austin chapter. We also explore the link between design, art and history, talk about his book “Designing Identity,” and discuss how month-long motorcycle trips help him learn how to do more with less.
