Robert Arnow
Director of Creative Instigation

Rob is the founder and creative director of Incitement Design. He launched his career as a freelance illustrator doing work for companies including Apple, the Washington Post, IBM and many others. Meanwhile, political activism has always been a central component of his life, and reached its apex when he ran a successful legislative campaign to bring public campaign financing to the San Francisco mayoral race.

As his business expanded over the years to encompass type design, graphic design and web development, he increasingly took on socially meaningful work, which culminated in the hiring of other designers in early 2012.

Rob's also been quoted in the New York Times and featured on televison talking about design and typography in political campaigns.

In his spare time, Rob creates paintings, photographs his international travels, designs fonts, creates street art projects and spends time exploring nature.
