Director of Production & Design
Don Wilson leads the Institute for Justice’s award-winning production team. His exceptional design and organizational skills continuously create eye-popping publications, reports and online materials.
Don’s work is well known by advocates of liberty. His eminent domain abuse images—appearing on posters, flyers, stickers and other forms of advertising—have been seen in newspapers, front yards and college dorm rooms as well as on TV and at rallies throughout the country. Organizations that offer awards for excellence in design have also noticed Don’s products. Most recently, the Association of Marketing and Communication selected five IJ publications from over 3,500 entries: Platinum Awards were given to the Four Pillars Society brochure and Hands off My Home poster; Opening the Floodgates and Liberty & Law received Gold Awards and School Choice and State Constitutions: A Guide to Designing School Choice Programs garnered an honorable mention.
In addition, IJ received the prestigious Crystal Award for its 10th Anniversary Yearbook, the MarCom Creative Award for website excellence, Web Marketing Association’s WebAward and an Award of Distinction from the Communicator Awards Print Competition for the 2005 Freedom Friends Holiday Card and 2007 Liberty & Law newsletter.
Don received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Taylor University in 1996. Prior to working as IJ’s Production and Design Director, he owned and operated a web design consulting business as well as a skateboard store and park. In his spare time, if Don isn’t outside running with team IJ, he can probably be found spending time with his wife Angela and kids Isadora and Tristan.
