Story
Introduction
Carlos Segura, founder of the Chicago-based design firm Segura Inc., came to the United States from Cuba at the age of nine. He began his career in graphic design as a production artist but soon gained more interesting challenges. He moved to Chicago in 1980 and worked for many prestigious ad agencies, including BBDO, Marsteller, Foote Cone & Belding, Young & Rubicam, Ketchum, and DDB Needham. In 1991 he founded Segura Inc. to pursue design more creatively with the goal of blending as much "fine art" into "commercial art" as he could. http://www.segura-inc.com was the beginning of a series of commercial ventures that expanded Carlos Segura's creative efforts. In 1994, http://www.t26.com (T26 Digital Type Foundry) was born to explore the typographical side of the business. T26 fonts are now distributed throughout the world. Segura Inc. and T26 have received numerous awards from organizations around the world, including the Tokyo Type Directors Club, The Society of Typographic Arts, both the New York Art Directors Club and the New York Type Directors Club, and the American Center for Design. Segura's work has been shown in many journals including Graphis, Print magazine, HOW, and publications by PIE Books, North Light Books, Duncan Baird Publishing, F&W Publications, Rockport Publishers, Die Gestalten Verlag Publishing and others. His work has been shown in exhibits from the Denver Art Museum to Tokyo Japa In 2001, He again ventured into a new category by starting http://www.5inch.com, and in 2004, launched http://www.cartype.com with further expansions of the typographical segment with http://www.biketype.com http://www.mototype.com http://www.trucktype.com"  In 2004, Segura was named 1 of the 21st Century's 100 best designers. (See pages 512 through 517 of GRAPHIC DESIGN FOR THE 21st CENTURY (100 of the World's Best Graphic Designers) 2003 annual. Taschen Publishers. 4 projects published). And in December of 2004, Segura was honored with Europe's Red Dot Award for the ongoing series called "Crop" for Corbis. Both the http://de.red-dot.org/207.html (Grand Prix) and the http://en.red-dot.org/1136.htm (Best of the Best) were awarded, the first time ever to a US design firm.
