Chuck Queener, a graphic designer and illustrator, attended Art Center School (Art Center College of Design) in the mid-1960s. Specializing in publication design, he has held staff positions at Motor Trend, Road & Track, SKI Magazine, Automobile, and Creative Director for several titles at TAM Communications.

Chuck has designed numerous award-winning books: Salute to Ferrari by Louis Klemantaski & Jesse Alexander, A Champion’s View by Phil Hill, Phil Hill: A Driving Life, and Ferrari: Stories from Those Who Lived the Legend.

As a graphic designer, Queener created the iconic logo for the Monterey Historic Automobile Races and produced its program for over 30 years. In 1987 he was asked by David E. Davis, Jr. to redesign Automobile magazine and that was the launching pad for Queener Design. Since then he has designed numerous consumer and trade titles in a variety of fields, including The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance program, a title he has designed for 26 years.

His illustrations have appeared in Automobile, Car and Driver, Motor Trend, Road & Track, and many European publications. In 2006 David Bull Publishing released Chuck’s gold-medal-winning The Alphabet and the Automobile. He has produced five posters for Club Ferrari France, three for Jacques Swaters’ 40th anniversary in 1992, six for the Amelia Island Concours (see covers below) and many others.

Chuck has been a judge at the National Magazine Awards for 17 years. Marshal Loeb, Managing Editor for Fortune magazine, and founding editor of Money once said, “he is one of those rare gems: an art director who can, and does, write for publication. He can, and does, conceive an entire publication and can execute it from scratch. This means he thinks like a journalist, and that is a quality highly prized in an Art Director.”

He has designed brochures and publications for BMW of North America’s M Divison, Dun & Bradstreet Corp., ELLE magazine, Ferrari North America, Hachette Filipacchi Magazines Inc., Louis Vuitton, New York Magazine, Rolex Watch U.S.A., Saab-Scania of America, Sotheby’s, U.S Ski Team, Volvo Cars USA and the Waldorf-Astoria.
