Speaking & Teaching
Sean Wolcott is a San Francisco-based graphic designer. Having created design experiences for products used by billions, Sean runs his own consulting practice, Rationale, where he designs identities, packaging, signage, publications, websites, and user interfaces for a wide range of clients.
His work reflects a holistic philosophy of design and a visual language, which aims at rational, objective expression that can appropriately convey client values. For Mr. Wolcott, design is not a matter of style, but rather a logical, problem-solving process that leads to timeless solutions.
Sean had the privilege of studying under Massimo Vignelli, whose teachings continue to inform his philosophy and propel his craft to higher standards of excellence. His work is often featured in printed and online publications, and he has been selected by Vignelli as one of the top five American graphic designers today under the age of 50. ￼
Sean has also taught at the School of Visual Concepts in Seattle, Washington, where he instructed corporate identity and user interface design courses. His efforts to inform and promote a better design culture are also reflected in his activity as an international speaker, having lectured several times in the United States, as well as in European countries.
