Graphic Design Alumnus, Tim Ogline Publishes History Book

Author: Kayla Cropper

On October 1, award-winning illustrator Tim Ogline (GAID '92) released his new book. Ben Franklin for Beginners was published by For Beginners Books and distributed through Random House. "The genesis of my Franklin project began in 2003 after hearing a story on NPR about the upcoming tercentenary of Benjamin Franklin's birth just three years away in 2006," Ogline said. Ogline has always been interested in the idea of storytelling through both his designs and the written word. "I've have a lifelong interest in storytelling, and have always seen my professional work in graphic design and illustration as using iconographic and conceptual means to engage in storytelling," Ogline said. "Employing storytelling through the combination of text and illustrations in concert with a carefully conceived design structure in the book making process has always been a passion and goal of mine."

Author: Kayla Cropper

Erica Wernick (GAID '08) fell in love with Los Angeles when she spent a summer at UCLA during high school.

After graduating from Tyler, she decided to make the move to the city of her dreams. When she got there, she found herself struggling with every aspect of her life. "Finding work, finding a place to live, making friends; it was all very difficult and scary, especially with no stability," Wernick said. Once she settled in, the graphic designer decided to write an eBook with advice for people who want to move to Los Angeles but are not sure where to start. Read More
