Creator Callout: David Vordtriede

While Cosmo Kimball and the Perfect Hat has quite the cast of characters, I wanted to first introduce you to the behind-the-scenes "cast of characters" who are creating it. And where better to start than with the brilliant David Vordtriede?

David is the designer and illustrator of the world of Cosmo Kimball. David’s early diet of Looney Tunes, Muppets, and Saturday morning cartoons fueled an interest in illustration, painting and sculpting that has made him one of the top illustrator/designers in the St. Louis area. His award-winning talents in print and web design have benefitted such companies as Microsoft, AT&T, BP, Redbox, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, St. Louis Public Radio, the National Pork Board, and Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo. For EFG Publishing Inc., David illustrated the book Boredom Blasters.

But perhaps his proudest design accomplishment to date is his Muppabet. Begun as a pet project celebrating the Muppets, the alphabet poster is an officially licensed product of The Walt Disney Company.

More recently, David has been responsible for the visuals in Vevo's A.K.A. series, such as this entry on LL Cool J:

David lives in St. Louis with his wife Jenny and their triplets Vincent, Evelyn, and Marian. His online portfolio resides at .
