Philippe Cao


Philippe Cao was born in France but has spent most of his childhood living in Japan and China. Most recently he’s worked on redesigning the native Clock app for Google’s Android devices as well as a typeface for use in synthetic-meat catalogues. His list of obsessions is always changing but right now they include: American football uniforms, cats, cheese, patches, neon colors, meat things, superhero comics, and the mythology of Kanye West. He is currently finishing his last year in the Graphic Design Department at RISD.
