Brad Tober

Brad Tober, an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is a designer, educator, and researcher whose work explores the potential of emerging code-based and interactive visual communication technologies, with the objective of developing applications of them to design practice and pedagogy. His practice-based research entity, the Experimental Interface Lab, is characterized by a speculative approach to design (a manifestation of pure research) that recognizes that forms of and methodologies for contemporary practice that spans design and technology are best developed through fundamentally flexible and exploratory processes. Brad holds an MDes from York University, a BFA in graphic design from the Savannah College of Art and Design, and a BA in mathematics from the University at Buffalo.
