    whoa!

    sorry I've been kind of outside the famous-designers circles for a while. Is he a star designer?

    I feel like only star designers can get away with not displaying your contact info or even your name on your portfolio site. For most of us, we can't afford to hide all those things because our names are not immediately recognizable, and if we apply for jobs, we can't just assume that a recruiter will know our names (heck, this guy probably will never need to talk to a recruiter)

      True! It's totally not fair! The question mark is the menu.. haha. I'd say he's pretty set if he's done album covers for Frank Ocean and Beck and worked at Pentagram and Wieden+Kennedy

        wow I had no idea. Poked around the site, didn't realize that question mark was a menu. But anyway, his focus is on illustration, and he's probably marketing himself as "I'm different!" which totally seems to work for him. He's got so much cool, public work under his belt he can just do that.

        As a run of the mill UX designer/information architect, if I did a site like that, I'd probably never get another job again...
