Henry Becker

Henry Becker is a graphic designer and typographer. His perspective on design was influenced by his five years serving as a sniper team leader in the United States Army. He holds a BA in Art and Design from East Stroudsburg University and a MFA in Graphic Design from the Maryland Institute College of Art, where he studied under Ellen Lupton, Jennifer Cole Phillips and Tal Leming.
Interested in type design, history, and how coding can impact design, his work has won multiple awards, including the Print Magazine award for type design. He was a semi-finalist in the 2015 Adobe Awards, and his work was part of the How Posters Work exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York City. He is currently writing a manuscript for a book with co-author Andrew Paul Keiper called The Sniper’s Guide to Graphic Design, which will explore the key traits a designer needs and how to solve design problems as a professional.
