We are a cross-disciplinary design group in Los Angeles, California and Portland, Oregon. Formed by Ramón Coronado and Marshall Rake in 2012, Public-Library produces collections of work across all platforms for our clients and collaborators. Public-Library is design with purpose.
Ramón Coronado has worked at Weiden+Kennedy, 72andSunny, SapientNitro, and Ferroconcrete. His works have been published in GOOD Magazine, Juxtapoz, Beautiful Decay Magazine, Current_, Fast Company and Gestalten. He's exhibited in Pure DKNY, SFHT Pop-up, 2010 World Expo: Shanghai, Smithsonian, Cumulus 2010 and Fred Segal. Ramón studied in Switzerland under mentor Wolfgang Weingart and received his BFA from Art Center College of Design in 2009.
Marshall Rake has worked at 2x4, Rumors, Mother, 180, and he is a Project M alumni. He co-founded Epilogue Magazine and They Magazine. He has exhibited at the Tokyo Art Book Fair (Tokyo, Japan) and Facing Pages Festival (Arnhem, Netherlands) and in 2009 was awarded a Certificate of Typographic Excellence by the Type Directors Club. Marshall currently teaches at Art Center College of Design where he also received a BFA in Graphic Design in 2009.
Our studio works in a wide variety of mediums including branding, interactive, art direction, exhibition and environmental, publication, packaging, print systems, book design, and title sequences.
In late 2012 we launched Public-Studies. Public-Studies is an on going series of experimentations and explorations. Originally created as a place to house our self-initiated projects, Public-Studies has since evolved into a place for collaboration and out going communication.
