Bradbury Thompson

A native of Topeka, Kansas, Bradbury Thompson left the Great Plains for the big city life of NYC, as you do when you're a creative. He worked for 60 years in NYC, for companies like Rogers, Kellog and Stillson, the magazine Mademoiselle and the West and Co. Paper Corporation and also taught at Yale. Thompson's work is distinguished by his talent for color, composition and understanding of the power of letter forms. His close relationship with the printing process is evident by his use of color overlays, which gives his work a refreshing energy. [RIT]
