Bill Ainsworth

Writer

He's good with words and pictures. So, is Bill a designer who writes or a writer who designs? As a kid growing up in Tulsa, he always had a pencil in his hand – drawing, writing stories, making up comic strips. He thought architecture was for him, so that's what he studied at OSU. When he discovered he missed working with words, he got a degree in advertising design from Colorado Institute of Art. For the next few years, he was an art director who wrote a lot of headlines; and for the past 25 years, he's edged closer to the word side of the creative equation. It's always nice to have a guy with an eye for white space. He's a whiz in the kitchen, making chicken 'n' dumplings and chili (the secret's in equal parts ground beef and sausage and using chicken stock instead of water). Bill's work – his artwork, not his chili—has been featured in Communication Arts, Print's Regional Design Annual, The New York Art Director's Annual and The One Show.
