Introduction

Mayhem Studios is a small award-winning design firm located in Los Angeles, California, developing identity and brand recognition for the business sector across the nation. The successful Studio is run by principal & creative director Calvin Lee.

Calvin's creative spark ignited at the ripe old age of 10, amidst some coloring books and a trusty 64 pack of Crayola’s®. In a defiant act of coloring outside the lines, he knew that he would have a career in the design field some day. Next came the comic book influence. He loved how they swept him away into another world. Entering the world of graphic design years later, he discovered he really enjoyed solving problems through a visual medium.

Mostly self-taught, armed with a library of design books and a penchant for hard work, Calvin started Mayhem Studios in 2001. Through Mayhem Studios, he integrates strategic thinking with creative design to create effective messages targeted to his clients’ specific audiences. Solutions may come in the form of identities, branded collateral pieces, annual reports, brochures, logo design, advertising and interactive web sites.

Sweating over a hot keyboard has resulted in receiving numerous international design awards, being featured in several books including: Identity Crisis, 100 Habits of Successful Freelance Designers, Creative Magazine, Creatively Self-Employed, Creativity Awards, American Corporate Identity, Big Book of Logos, Big Book of Letterheads, Big Book of Business Cards, Big Book of Layouts, Big Book of Design Ideas, Branded and 500 Simple Website Hints, Tips & Techniques.

Calvin has been profiled on several design related websites like Freelance Switch, Art Years, Design Inspiration, Creative Podcast and Area of Design.

Calvin also finds time to contribute to articles in print and online for Home Business Magazine, Creative Latitude: Logo Nation, Creative Latitude: Graphic Make Overs, BoDo, Fuel Your Creativity, Design O'Blog, Xemion and on his own blog, Method To The Mayhem.

Being the nice guy he is, Calvin believes in giving back to the community that helped to shape the person he is today. He serves as a member of the Platt College Advisory Board for the Visual Communications Department, on the NO!SPEC Committee, he is also in charge of membership submissions for Creative Latitude and moderator for the About.com Graphic Design forum.

When Mr. Lee's not busy doing his design thing, he enjoys working toward being the Hulk's stunt double by getting huge at the gym. He also has an affinity for dining out with friends, a movie buff and being a comic book geek.

#SuperBowl - Feeding the homeless with leftovers from gala parties
The luncheon was held just south of downtown, with about 100 in attendance. Compared with other galas in this, the host city for Super Bowl 50, the affair was modest, low-key.
