Mark Allen Design

Born in Houston, Texas, my earliest influences came from my commercial artist father, Harrison Allen. At twelve years old, my first art exhibits included posters that I created of my favorite bands that I gave to my neighborhood buddies to hang on their walls. I was hooked... I studied at Parsons School of Design in New York City Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and received my Bachelor of Science in Commercial Art at Texas State University in beautiful San Marcos, TX I am probably best known for my design and eccentric lettering style. I have worked on projects for prestigious clients Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Disney, FOX, Universal Studios Warner Brothers, CBS, GUESS, Levi’s, Salomon Snowboards (Paris), Astrea (Japan), Atlantic Records, Capitol Records, Miller Genuine Draft, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs (Bad Boy Records), Yu-Gi-Oh!, The Nightmare Before Christmas, 60th Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, The Simpson’s, King of The Hill, Family Guy, My Name is Earl, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and M*A*S*H.

I served as Vice President of Development for the Los Angeles Chapter of The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) for two years. I have been an invited lecturer and portfolio reviewer at Cal State Universities and at Art Center College of Design. I have been involved with university internship programs, and have employed students from colleges throughout the U.S. and the UK. I judged a show and presented my work to AIGA Las Vegas.
