Randall J Lane
Art Director | Graphic Designer
Hi, I’m Randall J Lane a Brooklyn based freelance art director and designer. I like helping clients find and express their voice through visual communication. My love for all things typography and design developed after growing up in the DIY cultures of punk rock, skateboarding and graffiti (zines, zines, posters and zines.) After rejecting the fine art education I was pursuing, I started Graphic Havoc, avisualagency with some friends in the mid 90s (don’t worry, I still love “fine” art.)
Over the past 20+ years I’ve worked with countless businesses and individuals on projects across the visual spectrum: working in the fields of Branding and Identity, Book Design, Web and Interactive, Motion Graphics and Moving Image Direction. My clients have included businesses in consumer electronics, entertainment, health care, publishing, non-profit, music, education, retail, fashion and the fine arts. (The Pizzuti Collection, NBC Universal, Nokia, AOL, Burton Snowboards, Nike, MTV, Expedia, Triple Five Soul, CurrentTV and many others)
The work I produced for Proof, Media for Social Justice on the Darfur project was awarded a silver cube at the 87th Annual Art Directors Club Awards for Book Design: Photography.
“Working with Randall has been an immensely creative experience for our non profit. Not only did he design a beautiful book on a haunting subject, Darfur, but the branding of Proof has lead to more opportunities for us.”
-Leora Kahn, President, Proof: Media for Social Justice.
In 2010 I started Brown & Jackson with my wife Judy Brown to explore our interest in interiors and have created events and pop-ups including a pop-up shop for Salvatore Ferragamo in Beverly Hills. Currently Brown & Jackson is working with a client to design a growler filling station in Baltimore, MD.
In January of 2015 Judy and I launched Collected Together, an online store for art prints. Working with artists, illustrators and designers around the world, Collected Together offers archival prints in both Open and Limited Editions.
I’d love to hear about you and your project and do some collaboration and stuff, please feel free to contact me.
