Photography Akos Major

Hello & Welcome! I hail from the good old Pennsylvania Dutch area of Lebanon, PA. Like most other visual artists, I have been painting and drawing ever since I could hold a brush and pencil. After serving in the military, I attended the Minneapolis College of Art + Design (MCAD) in Minneapolis, Minnesota where I earned a BFA in Graphic Design. I have been actively making and designing for the past 12 years. I live and work in York, PA and Baltimore, MD. I am also in my third year of teaching Hand lettering at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, Maryland.

I offer services in branding/Identity, logo development, typography, hand-lettering, and editorial design. Some of my recent clients have included companies like Coach, YouTube, Entertainment Weekly, JORD and the Urban Land Institute. 

Fun Facts: I play drums, I like motorcycles, beer, tattoos, science fiction books, old hand-made typography, architecture, fist fights and really great eye candy. I’ve also been listening to these bands quite a bit: Waxahatchee, Lord Huron, Q and not U, White Lies, Hot Snakes and sprinkled with a bit of Sam Black Church and Despised Icon. I secretly like Lady Gaga too. But don’t tell anyone.

Thank you for taking the time to look at some of my work. If you’d like to get in touch with me for work or just to say hello, you can reach me via email here:
