I'm a creative professional working and teaching graphic design in Austin, Texas. Since early childhood, I've enjoyed the creative process and the pursuit of creative fulfillment through art. This desire to create has spilled over into my adult life as a multidisciplinary artist and drives my excitement about the potential for visual communication in the classroom and with clients. My work includes identity systems, illustration, comics, type design, and hand lettering. I recently completed a Master's thesis entitled Mississippi: A Study Investigating Flags and Identity, which is a love letter to my home state. My work has been recognized by the Austin Addy Awards, Art Director's Club, The One Club, and Creative Summit.
I've also been painting for galleries and private collectors for the past 15+ years. You can see my paintings at www.ChaseQuarterman.com
MFA — Texas State University
MA — The University of Texas at Austin

My research interests include vexillology, branding, illustration, and typography.
Note concerning the hand logo: The name "Quarterman" or "Quatremains" in Old French means "four hands." The Quarterman family crest includes four right hands, which (to me) signify the act of creation and of craftsmanship. This stylized hand logo was originally designed for a flag I created for my family. You can see it here.
