Mark Fox designs trademarks, icon systems, and hand-lettered typography. His work with Angie Wang for March Pantry, Anson Mills, One Catering, and others has been honored by the AIGA, Communication Arts, Graphis, Print, and the Type Directors Club.

Fox has been described by Aaron Betsky, former Curator of Architecture and Design at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, as “a master at the specialized task of designing logos and symbols.” Betsky states further, “His designs have the impact of early twentieth-century propaganda, the aura of medieval myth, and the thought-provoking quality of a work of critical art.” Writing in Graphis, Ken Coupland notes Fox’s “talent for compressing the maximum amount of message into the minimum amount of acreage.”

His work has been recognized nationally and internationally in such publications as Affiche (The Netherlands), B.A.T. (France), Blueprint (England), Communication Arts (United States), Critique (United States), Graphis (Switzerland), and Novum (Germany). His posters are included in the AIGA Design Archives at the Denver Art Museum, as well as in collections at the United States Library of Congress and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. A one-man show of his political posters—“BlackDogma: Selections from the Work of Mark Fox in the Permanent Collection of Architecture + Design”—was exhibited at SFMOMA in 1999.

Fox is the Chair of Graphic Design at California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco where he is an Associate Professor and has taught since 1993. He worked under the nom de guerre BlackDog for 20+ years prior to his collaboration with Angie Wang at Design is Play. Read Less
