Senior Associate / Technical Designer
Lon Calvert brings a wide range of knowledge and experiences to bear on client projects based on his diverse experiences. He is a classically trained award-winning designer specializing in both interiors and industrial, is an expert in accessible design, serves as a member of the Texas State Guard and has lived in multiple parts of the United States. As a result, Lon approaches his work with creative ideas, disciplined focus and an open mindset.
He works primarily in environmental graphic design, experiential design and wayfinding for a variety of clients ranging from retailers to universities to medical facilities and top tier auto manufacturers. One project that stands out in Lon’s mind is The Mosaic District in Fairfax, Virginia, in which he was involved from the beginning. The initial design scope expanded from primarily wayfinding and graphics to an experiential design that won two ICSC (International Council of Shopping Centers) Gold Medals for its transformation of an underutilized area to a thriving town center.
In addition to several other design awards including Best Display of the North American International Auto Show for Chrysler, Lon also has received two individual awards from the Texas Military Department for his service in the State Guard. When he has free time, Lon enjoys restoring antique cars and collecting vintage comic books.
Previously, Lon worked for Dyal and Partners, which was acquired by Page. Prior to that, he worked for several other firms including RTKL and Gensler, serving in a design capacity at each one. He keeps up with changes in the design industry through membership in the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD).
Lon received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Industrial Design from The College for Creative Studies in Detroit, and a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from The University of Texas at Arlington.
