Igor Goldkind was born April 20, 1960 in Lansing, Michigan and raised in San Diego, California. He is an author, poet, and lecturer who currently specializes in Digital Storytelling and Information Architecture. In 1983, Goldkind moved to Paris where he studied with Michel Foucault, the French Post-Structuralist scholar. After receiving a graduate certificate from La Sorbonne, Goldkind moved to London where he worked first for Titan Books in the 1980s and then for IPC Magazines and Egmont Fleetway in the 1990s as a marketing consultant and PR spokesperson. Here, Goldkind helped develop and promoted the term "graphic novel" as a way to help sell the trade paperbacks then being published. Today, the Graphic Novel is a well-respected, internationally recognized genre.

He set up a digital publishing company called Artemis Communications in 1993. one of the first digital agencies in the country, developing many first-ever publishing websites for Oxford University Press, Pearson’s Publishing, Lisson Gallery, The Tate Modern, and Usborne Books. In 1998 he established Signa Internet Strategies, considered to be the UK's first exclusively Search Engine Optimization company.
Goldkind has lectured at Liverpool University, St. Martins School of Design, and the London College of Printing. He is considered by his contemporaries to be an expert in the growing fields of Information Architecture, Usability Standards, and User Experience. He continues to write and serve as the creative mind behind projects that link computational technologies with art, education, and storytelling. http://comiccon.sdsu.edu/igor-goldkind/.
