Sean Lopano

Class 2012

A strategic brand and identity designer, Sean integrates the disciplines of business and strategy to inform graphic, art, environmental and interactive solutions. As a strategic designer he's interested in discovering who clients want to be and who they can become; not simply what they are. Visually expressing these desires is key for brands to become transformative experiencesthey become iconic and emotionally charged.
Spending much of his life between the wide earthly spaces of Texas and the luxurious and compact grid of New York City, Sean creates strategic visual communications that clearly and uniquely express this duality. With simple, yet emotional and communicative executions, his work is bold, clean and compelling—always with a sense of dramatic minimalism.
Additionally, Sean loves chocolate, vintage boots, typefaces, cameras, the beach, oysters, and cowboys.
