Kristian Bjørnard is a professor of graphic design at the Maryland Institute College of Art. He lives in Baltimore, MD, with his wife and two children in an old stone house they’re trying to make energy efficient. He’s made biodiesel, helped his wife run a vegetable farm, and is now converting his family’s small yard into an orchard. When he isn’t sequestering carbon and free(ing) culture, Bjørnard designs identities; algorithmic tools; and books, magazines, and digital publications for a variety of clients. Whatever the output, he sees every project as an opportunity to create signs signaling sustainability. Bjørnard holds an MFA in graphic design from MICA and a BA in studio art from Kalamazoo College.
