Speaker: Matthew Rezac

Mattew Rezac is coming to speak on Tuesday November 1st @ 5:45!  www.matthewrezac.org

Formally established in 2006 by Matthew Rezac, this small Minneapolis-based design studio focuses on print and publication design for a variety of clients — from artists and art institutions to small businesses. Working both independently and collaboratively — with other designers, filmmakers, photographers, and web developers — the studio is capable of taking on projects of all types and sizes. By maintaining an economical DIY-inspired approach, the studio is able to reach underserved sectors while remaining competitive in the commercial and cultural fields. The mission is simple: to develop innovative and functional design solutions that are rooted equally in concept and content.

Before venturing out on his own, Matthew Rezac served as a Graphic Design Fellow at the Walker Art Center from 2004–2006. He studied graphic design and photography at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design — where he also worked for one year, as part of a small team charged with re-branding the school. His studio (and pre-studio) work has been featured in HOWIdea, and Print magazines. In 2006 he was featured in STEP magazine’s “Field Guide to Emerging Design Talent.” Born and raised in the cultural void of South Dakota, his teenage years were spent creating something from nothing — crafting numerous rock bands, booking small punk shows, producing ’zines, photographing bands, and crudely designing fliers. This DIY, “make your own fun” methodology continues to shape and inform his design practice.
