The Team

Rex Peteet

Founding Partner, Principal Designer

Engage Rex in a discussion about design, and his careful choice of words—efficient, thoughtful, unexpected, honest, disciplined and inspiring—will quickly provide insight to his design philosophy and the value of his aesthetic. It’s an asset that has been in-demand by clients seeking exceptional identity, corporate communications and design solutions since 1982, including such clients as Southwest Airlines, HP, Haggar Apparel, Lincoln Hotels, Milton Bradley, Coca-Cola, Temple-Inland, Brinker International and the US Olympic Committee.

Rex’s work is recognized as seminal examples of American design, with several pieces in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress, as well as the Hiroshima Museum of Modern Art. He has won scores of national and regional awards, including the New York Art Directors Show, the Art Directors Show of Los Angeles and the AR 100, the country’s largest and most prestigious design competition for annual reports.

His designs have been widely published and featured in industry magazines and annuals including Communication Arts, Print, STEP, HOW and Graphis, the premier magazine of international design. In 2005 Rex was the recipient of The Golden Egg career achievement award, bestowed by the largest professional design organization in the United States, the Dallas Society of Visual Communications.

As a testament to the firm’s impact on American design, Sibley/Peteet Design was included in the 50th anniversary issue of Communication Arts, which chronicled the most influential design and advertising firms in the U.S., in their “Genealogy of Visual Communication.”

Rex was the Principal Designer for the identity, wayfinding and interpretive signage needs of the Sid Richardson Museum in Fort Worth. Rex has partnered with architects and developers to create the identity for numerous national restaurant projects such as Fuddruckers, Chili’s, Macaroni Grill, GattiTown and The University of Texas’ O’s Campus Cafe.

Rex is a member of the Society for Environmental Graphic Design, the Design Management Institute and AIGA, the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design. He was the founding Director of the first Texas chapter of AIGA, and sits on the Advisory Board of AIGA Austin.
