Mike Gold is a senior lettering designer at American Greetings in Cleveland, OH, where he's worked the past 25 years. Mike has an M.A. in Visual Communications and has studied with many outstanding teachers over the years. Mike has taught around the country and at several international calligraphy conferences. Mike's personal work has been featured in Letter Arts Review many times over the past 20-plus years. Mike's design philosophy and approach, along with lots of visuals, is outlined in his new book, Lines to Live By, available through John Neal, Bookseller. 

“My joy is exploring the corridors of calligraphy that have been less traveled, the path where words and letters are design elements with which to play with line, shape and form, where creating a visual statement is more important than writing a readable text. As Lee Krasner has written, ‘If the alphabet is A to Z, I want to move with it all the way, not only from A to C’."
