    Don D. Bruno

Don went on to teach silkscreen, photography, and design at the College of St. Benedict then typography and design at St. Cloud State University. Bruno was also a freelance designer and became a self-taught letterpress printer when he built a print shop on to the back of his garage at his home in St. Joseph, MN. Don designed logos for the College of St. Benedict Art Department, Nahan Printing, ATS Trucking, and many more. Don was ahead of his time with his elegant design and print style, until his sudden death in 2003 at the age of 63.
