Storytellers By Design attracts hundreds of people to Central Texas every year. Design students and creative professionals come together for this week long event, held in San Marcos in 2018 on the Texas State University campus. Storytellers By Design focuses on the importance of design from a narrative point of view.

Inspired by traditional book covers, the identity combines a calligraphic typeface with contemporary storytelling iconography.
