Mark Sanders is a designer, teacher, author, typographer, photographer, baker and basket maker.


He explores many of these pursuits as a Founder and Creative Director at the trans-disciplinary design studio Q Collective, a professor of graphic design at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and co-author of the 6th and 7th editions of Typographic Design: Form and Communication. Mark designs and produces interactive projects, identities, literature systems, promotional items, books, and exhibitions for a diverse group of cultural institutions. His latest work explores interaction design as a folk art pursuit, expressing cultural identity by conveying shared community values and aesthetics through digital interface, architecture, and experience. He facilitates and constructs participatory digital archives that are transient portals into process, presentation, participation, and dissemination.
