Young Guns 10 WINNERS

2012: For the tenth edition of Young Guns, the program abandoned its 50-winner quota, opting to simply award the very best entries, no matter how big or small the class would be. The result: a lean and mean Young Guns 10 class of 34 exceptionally talented winners.

The Young Guns 10 Cube and annual, both designed by YG5 winners Andre Andreev and Dress Code, and hand-lettered by Timothy Goodman (YG7), were made of concrete (yes, a book with concrete covers!) and emblazoned with Roman numeral Xs to mark the class. The ceremony and party took place on November 8, 2012.

New Mexico-born, Idaho-raised, and New York City-based, Cardon Webb studied under Paul Sahre at the School of Visual Arts before working first, with Louise Fili at her New York studio, and subsequently with John Gall at Vintage Books, where he is currently a designer.

Cardon’s thesis project, Cardon Copy, a visual exploration of self-distributed street fliers and tear-offs, was honored with a solo exhibition at the Type Directors Club highlighting his project. He is also the curator of several TDC shows and auctions, including Beautifully Banal, and Posters of Fortune. The renowned designers and artists who have collaborated with Cardon on the TDC shows are too many to list, but include: Niklaus Troxler, Carin Goldberg, James Victore, and Alex Trochut.

Cardon had the privlage of working on-site with established contemporary artist David Salle on typographical explorations. His work at Vintage books has been praised by Design Bureau and Frame magazines, and his innovative designs for the complete works of Oliver Sacks were included in PRINT magazine’s best book covers of 2011.

In his non-existent spare time, Cardon enjoys rock climbing, skateboarding, and raising his son Koos with his beautiful wife Kelly Sue.
