About Ian Lynam
After cutting his teeth writing music reviews for weeklies in New York and a decade-plus span editing and self-publishing zines in California and Oregon, Ian Lynam jumped ship and opened a multi-disciplinary design studio in Tokyo, Japan. Previously, he had spent years working in print shops learning the intricacies of presswork and logged time as a designer and art director for some of the top design firms and advertising agencies in the U.S.
His writing has been published in Font Magazine, Art in America, PingMag, and Plazm. Lynam’s work has been featured in numerous graphic design books and magazines including Territory, Grafik, One Hundred at 360, and Ten Essential Typefaces for a Lifetime. He is the design editor and art director of the Japan-focused cultural journal Néojaponisme.
