dan lee design studio is – you guessed it – the design studio of dan lee.
Dan is an artist who loves all forms of art and is proficient in several, mostly illustration, handlettering, and graphic design, which you'll discover from browsing his social media accounts. Dan has been drawing, mostly with pencils, since he has had memories. He is lately an avid user of Apple and Adobe products and is a huge fan of layers, the Apple Pencil, and Ctrl+Z.
Dan graduated from Drexel University in 2014 with a master's degree in chemical engineering, a program that provided a lot of invaluable teamwork experience, problem solving skills, and stressful nights of ordering pancakes at 3am while finding solutions for second order differential equations.
Since then, he's done a lot of freelance design work, drawn lots of words, and currently works as part of an amazing in-house design team at the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia.
Dan's interests range from analyzing/singing top 40 pop music and wandering around the city of Philadelphia to organizing rooms and discussing theology or murder mysteries over waffles. He draws ceaseless inspiration from lettering legends classic and contemporary (e.g., Herb Lubalin, Erik Marinovich, Jessica Hische, Simon Walker), comic book artists (e.g., Cameron Stewart, David Aja, Annie Wu, Fiona Staples), portrait painters from the early twentieth century, and the narrative illustrations of Norman Rockwell and N.C. Wyeth.
Dan currently lives in Media, PA, just outside of Philadelphia.
