Andrew Szoeke

ANDREW SZOEKE (1893 - 1969) was an American artist and furniture maker best known for his mid-century style designs. Szoeke, who was admired in his day as one of the great graphic artists of America, put his mastery of form and silhouette to work in furniture, type design, graphic design and fine arts. His artisanry reached its peak in his elaborate furniture and decorative objects, which featured his tour de force wood inlay. He’s also famous in some circles for the designs he created for Hallmark, including the version of the crown logo that the greeting-card company has been using for the past 65 years.
