Duncan MacGruer


design • illustration • animation • art direction


Roswell, GA


In business as an independent creative resource since 1992, my work is a balance of design, illustration and art direction. I have been involved at every level of the creative process, from concept and visualization through execution and appraisal, giving me a unique appreciation for the relationship between creativity and the fulfillment of business objectives.

Though I specialize in scientific, architectural, product and technical illustration, there is no limit to subject matter and technique, and I pride myself on being able to achieve a broad array of style. An educational background and work history in fine arts, theatrical and industrial design has also enabled me to work in a wide variety of design disciplines. My work has included the design of stage scenery, museum and corporate exhibits, consumer products, architecture, major league scoreboard installations, environmental graphics and much more.

I have appeared in such prestigious publications as Nature, Computer Graphics World and FONT, and I am honored to include the organizations listed below among my clients. I would be equally honored to work with your organization.
