Brian Morgan

A seasoned, award-winning  art director, I have a special expertise in typography and editorial design. I love ideas — new ones, old ones, editorial ones, and visual ones — and idea creation.

I have been working as a graphic designer since 1995 and I have designed everything from a tea-towel to a newspaper, from web ads to books. In 2017 I was the IP Design Resident at Concordia University’s District 3 Innovation Centre. From 2008 to 2017 I was the art director of The Walrus, a Canadian magazine founded in 2003 in the spirit of Harper’s, New Yorker, and the Atlantic. I also have worked on Maclean’s and the Toronto art magazine C. At The Walrus I oversaw everything from the design of the nameplate, to the distribution of the ads in the book. And I designed more than 80 covers.

While I love working with artists, photographers, and illustrators, my abiding interest is in type and typography. In the years since I first learned to hand-set type in art school, I remain fascinated by the craft and history, packed into the seemingly simple curves of an ‘e’. 

Currently, I’m the art director of Maisonneuve. I’m based in Montréal, Québec.
