Carl De Torres / Carl De Torres Graphic Design
Carl De Torres graduated from the California College of the Arts in 2003 with a focus in editorial illustration. Shortly after school he joined the art department at WIREDin San Francisco and quickly worked his way up the masthead to Senior Art Director. His background in illustration, love of design and interest in science was a perfect fit for the magazine. Over the next few years Mr. De Torres and his fellow teammates led WIRED to receive three consecutive National Magazine Awards for Design, three consecutive Magazine of the Year Awards from the Society of Publication Designers in New York, as well as dozens of other accolades for individual story design, illustration and photography.
In 2010 he left WIRED to start Carl De Torres Graphic Design, a multi-disciplinary studio that specializes in creation of visual identities, illustration and information design. A few of his regular clients include Adobe, ESPN, Facebook, Fortune, George Lucas, IBM, Nature, The New York Times, and TIME. He lives and works in Oakland, California.
