Lance Wyman

While he is best known for his legendary design work for the 1968 Mexico Olympics, Lance Wyman has become an unquestioned master of transforming space through branding and wayfinding over his 50+ year career as a designer and teacher. Through his designs for massive urban systems, airports, zoos, and museums, his thoughtful and culture-sensitive work has helped define the field of environmental graphics. Over the course of his career he has created systems for the Mexico City Metro, National Zoo, American Museum of Natural History, New York Penn Station, National Mall, Minnesota Zoo and Jeddah International Airport among many others. His design work resonates today as much as it did in the 60s when he first began.

Wyman taught corporate and wayfinding design at Parsons the New School for Design in New York for forty years, from 1973 until 2013. He lectures internationally and is still designing. The first compendium of his work, Lance Wyman: The Monograph, was recently published by Unit Editions.
