Armin Vit
Co-founder of UnderConsideration, a graphic design and publishing enterprise

Armin Vit believes that to be truly creative, you have to put your own personality and point of view into your work. That idea is evident in Armin’s own unconventional design career. After leaving the New York office of a global design firm, he co-founded UnderConsideration in 2007 in Brooklyn, New York and relocated to Austin, Texas in 2009. UnderConsideration provides design services to clients, but it also runs a network of websites that drive the global conversation about design and its growing importance in the modern world. Armin shows how a commitment to design thinking can inspire designers around the world to voice their own perspectives and points of view.

Born and raised in Mexico City, Armin won his first creative award at age 8. He has written for many widely known trade publications, but he is better known for his writing on the six sites that make up the UnderConsideration online network, including Speak Up, Brand New, Quipsologies, The Design Encyclopedia, Word It and FPO.
