 Lettering artist Adé Hogue and some of his work

Adé Hogue is an art director, designer, and lettering artist specializing in hand-created type. He has worked with various agencies in Chicago for brands such as Nike, ALDI, Mercedes-Benz, Moen, Teavana, and The Atlantic. Doing more than pushing pixels, he takes ideas and turn them into something physical using his hands to blend the beautiful with the practical. Adé has presented his personal work in exhibitions such as Typeforce, an annual juried showcase of typographic artists in Chicago. He has also been an invited speaker at design and creativity conferences such as Top Con, Creative South, and Adobe MAX. In the fall of 2017 he was selected as one of PRINT Magazine’s New Visual Artists—an annual roundup of 15 of the best creatives today under 30. Currently, Adé runs his own design studio and freelances for a range of clients while teaching lettering and typography courses at DePaul University.
