PrattMWP

Doug Aldrich was born in Syracuse NY where he caught a taste for art in the public space — specifically typography and signage. While studying graphic design at PrattMWP in Utica, he was under a microscope of attention and encouraged to combine his personal artistic talents with traditional methods of typography and design. The PrattMWP program forced him outside of his comfort zone and exposed him to the fundamentals of art. In 2010, he relocated to Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn campus. The pulse of the city and Doug’s insane work ethic inspired his passion for personal graphic expression. His devotion to hand-drawn type was challenged by the clean graphic standards at Pratt — where he would eventually incorporate the two worlds. He has created a large body of artwork for subcultures within the music and art scenes, ranging from record covers to murals. Currently residing in Brooklyn, Doug expects to earn his B.F.A. in Communication Design this coming May.

What have you gained from attending design school?
To ride the line between illustration and design where no blanketed term will stop me from creating.
