ABOUT







Lance Wyman

Designer who became famous because of his work on wayfinding and branding projects, and his designs for massive urban systems, airports, zoos, and museums. Over the course of his career he has created systems for the Mexico 1968 Olympics, Mexico City Metro, National Zoo, American Museum of Natural History, New York Penn Station, National Mall, Minnesota Zoo and Jeddah International Airport. Wyman taught corporate and wayfinding design at Parsons the New School for Design in New York for forty years, from 1973 until 2013. He lectures internationally and is still designing. The first compendium of his work, Lance Wyman: The Monograph, was published by Unit Editions.

Creator of the identity, logos, fonts, and design elements for the Mexico 1968 Olympics in the op-art or prismatic style. The multilined font, called Mexico Olympic, is due to Photoscript Ltd (I think). A digital font inspired by it is Olio Inline (2012, Max Little).

Wyman, who is a branding specialist based in New York City, is known for his many excellent icons and logos for companies and events. Born in Newark, NJ, he is a graduate of Pratt in Brooklyn with a degree in Industrial Design. He made the Tipo Metro font in 1969 for Mexico City's subway, an adaptation of Eurostile. That font was revived later as Metro DF by Harold Lohner. A pixel version of this (by Kemie, is called Balderas).
