His passions range from reading anything remotely design related to letterpressing, made possible by the acquisition of a 2,000 lb. Chandler & Price 12” x18” clamshell press circa 1918 and twenty trays of type. He finds that a nice balance of technology and trends (iPod, G4, Netflix, Flickr) mixed in with some good old classics (books, letterpress, Hawkeye box camera) give a nice balanced creative output. If he finds the time, he dives into painting and collage with the aid of power tools. Bennett also gains inspiration along with some visual input from his printmaking wife, Suzanne.
Bennett studied graphic design at Concordia University where he earned his BFA in 1999. Bennett has worked as a designer at several full service agencies, and as an in-house designer. Currently he is working as an Art Director at Nebraska Book Company. While living in Omaha he was an executive board member of AIGA Nebraska. His work has been featured by the AIGA, STEP Inside Design magazine and a couple recently published design books, Fingerprint and Mastering Materials, Bindings, and Finishes. Bennett founded club(red), a graphic design book club through the Nebraska chapter of the AIGA.
