The Designer - Woody Pirtle
Graphic design consultant Woody Pirtle's logos, posters, environmental
graphics and corporate communications are often published as some
of the best examples of their kind.
He came to Pentagram in 1988 as a partner following ten years
of running his own successful practice in Dallas and earlier training
at The Richards Group. He studied architecture and fine art at
the University of Arkansas.
Woody's identity and publication designs for clients like PrimeCo.,
United Technologies, Nine West, Northern Telecom, Rizzoli Publishing,
Upper and Lower Case, Simpson Paper Company and the Rockefeller
Foundation deliver corporate messages with visual
elegance and inventiveness. His economical logotypes and witty
posters demonstrate a refined graphic sensibility.
His experience in developing sign systems and environmental work
includes siqnage, store graphics and packaging for the prototype
Champion retail store, site and directional signage for American
Airlines Headquarters and Reservations Office in Arlington, Texas
(in conjunction with Corgan Assoc. architects), and siqnage and
graphics for the Fuji Television Network's new headquarters in
Tokyo, the Railroaders Museum in Altoona, Pennsylvania, the Dallas
Gallery (Gerald D. Hines Interests, developer), and several Dallas
buildings developed by Cadillac Fairview.
As his influential work has continued to set new standards for
design excellence, Woody has been appointed to design advisory
boards of several corporations and has been consultant to Pantone,
IBM and Champion International.
Woody's work has been exhibited worldwide and is in the permanent
collections of the Museum of Modern Art New York, the Victoria & Albert
Museum in London, The Danish Poster Museum, the Neue Sammlung Museum
in Munich, and the Zurich Poster Museum. He has taught at the School
of Visual Arts, is a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale,
and has served on the board of HOW magazine and the American Institute
of Graphic Arts.
