Established in 1981, the firm’s work in package design, corporate identity, and print collateral has been awarded Clios, honored by the American Institute of Graphic Arts, and featured in Graphis, Communication Arts, and Print magazine. Designs by the firm, known as MOD (for Michael Osborne Designs, Inc.), are in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. Osborne also owns and operates One Heart Press, a letterpress print shop known for producing fine press books, invitations, and other unique printed materials. In 1992, he turned his attention to printmaking and etching and enjoyed his premiere solo fine art exhibit in 1994.
