About🤔

Ian Besler is a designer, educator, and writer whose work is situated at the edges between interfaces, media, software, and cities. His practice is especially interested in the best practices, standards, and vernaculars of visual communication and digital interactions. He was raised in Chicago. He is based in Los Angeles.

Trained as a journalist and media designer, his practice applies tools of writing, reporting, and visual communication, such as interviews, site visits, and collaborative workshops, to interrogate and reimagine the role of digital tools and interfaces in how we create and experience the digital and physical spaces across which we increasingly live.

He works at Besler & Sons, LLC, a multidisciplinary studio that he co-founded in with Erin Besler, a lecturer in the Department of Architecture and Urban Design (A.UD) at University of California Los Angeles. They work on buildings, objects, videos, interfaces, and interiors to expand the definition of architecture through active participation with amateur creators, construction trades, and design software.

Alongside their practice, they pursue design research through writing and teaching, with publications in journals including Perspecta, Log, San Rocco, and Pidgin. Their work has been presented and exhibited in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Vancouver, Shenzhen, and Sydney.

Besler & Sons have been profiled and their work featured in The New York Times T Magazine, Dezeen, Architect Magazine, The Architect's Newspaper, Archinect, ArchDaily, and Design Indaba.

Ian is a lecturer of design with courses in interaction design and user experience design at the University of Southern California, Santa Monica College, and a recent graduate design seminar at ArtCenter College of Design.

His writing has been published in Medium, Gizmodo, Archpaper, and the LA Forum Newsletter. His essay “Super Models or: Some (Scale) Models That I’d Like to Know” received a Core77 Design Award for Writing & Commentary. A book of his images, titled Best Pracitces, will be published in by No Style Press.

His background is in journalism and graphic design; he holds a Bachelor of Science in Journalism from the College of Media at the University of Illinois and a Master of Fine Arts from the Media Design Practices program at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, where he was the Milken Family Foundation Post-Graduate Design Fellow.
