UnderConsideration / EST. 2001

Bryony Gomez-Palacio and Armin Vit

Bryony Gomez-Palacio and Armin Vit founded UnderConsideration in 2002 and have tended to its growth since then. Eerily, they do many things together and have many things in common.

Born and raised in Mexico City, both are graphic designers, currently running the Department of Design as UnderConsideration’s creative services outlet. When not working, writing or obsessing about design Armin lectures on a range of topics in a range of cities — Bryony allows it, and even joins him on occasions, like their last joint talk in Venice, Italy. Before establishing UnderConsideration Bryony and Armin had worked in the industry for ten years, accruing experience in various disciplines including corporate and brand identity, annual reports, business collateral, web design and programming, packaging, as well as magazine and book design. In their last employment positions they worked as senior designers for two of New York’s most prolific and recognized design firms, Addison and Pentagram, respectively. Their work has been recognized in numerous award publications and books, and they regularly serve on design juries for various national competitions as well. In 2006, one of their blogs was the only blog included in the Cooper-Hewitt’s National Design Triennial.

They are the authors of The Word It Book: Speak Up Presents a Gallery of Interpreted Words (2007); Women Of Design: Influence And Inspiration From The Original Trailblazers To The New Groundbreakers (2008); Graphic Design, Referenced: A Visual Guide to the Language, Applications, and History of Graphic Design (2009).

They reside in Austin, Texas with their daughter Maya.
