David Rudnick is a British-born, American-educated, self-taught graphic designer.
Since graduating from Yale in 2009 with a degree in Art History, he has explored his relationship to visual communication, language and memory through type design, printed matter, video and web design. He works frequently with musicians, having design artwork for over 100 records including releases for Evian Christ, Erol Alkan, Optimo, and Clouds, and has worked with artists including Jon Rafman, Megan Rooney, and Roman Liska on exhibition materials, and has designed books for Sternberg Press, Goldsmiths College. In 2014 Rudnick was commissioned along with Raf Rennie to provide the design for the Serpentine Gallery’s Extinction Marathon, curated by Hans–Ulrich Obrist, and in 2015 produced “The Trance War: Archives and Documentation (1998–Ongoing), an exhibition with Evian Christ at the ICA London, which publically explored the visual history and ephemera of the fictional cultural conflict. His practice, and his talk, explore his relationship to visual culture, his concerns with the design industry and its discourse, his thoughts on Cinema, Chef’s Table, and the social implications of design’s relationship to its audience.
