This biography from the Archives of AskART:
His name and work is legendary in the graphic design and illustration worlds. His stylistic illustrations and designs have been internationally and nationally recognized from New York to Paris to Tokyo. He has won an untold number of awards from the Art Directors Clubs of New York and New Jersey, as well as from the Type Directors Club and societies of illustrators and publication designers.

Ruffins has taken his art to a higher level, designing and illustrating approximately 15 children's books and calendars and work which has been shown at the prestigious Bologna Children's Book Fair in Italy and awarded "Best Illustrated" by the New York Times Book Review.

As one of the founding members of the famed Push Pin Studio, and as a freelance designer/illustrator, his clients have included Young & Rubicam, BBDO, McCann-Erickson, CBS, AT&T, Coca-Cola, IBM and The New York Times. The distinctive Essence magazine logo was designed by Ruffins. In 1991, he illustrated a video for Rabbit Ears Productions with narration by Whoopi Goldberg and music by Herbie Hancock.

A 1951 graduate of the Cooper Union, Ruffins has received the school's Presidential Citation for his work and prominence in his profession and most recently, the Augustus St. Gaudens Award, the "highest honor given to a Cooper Union Alumnus."

This article, submitted by Meshella Johnson, is excerpted from an upcoming book on African-American designers authored by Shauna D. Stallworth, executive director of the Organization of Black Designers (OBD).
