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 was Creative Director at TAM Communications for over 17 years.

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. Currently he produces the event program for The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, which he has done since 1996.

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 and many others.

He has been a judge at the National Magazine Awards for 17 years. Marshal Loeb, Managing Editor 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.”

His clients have included BMW of North America, ELLE magazine, Ferrari North America, Hachette Filipacchi Magazines Inc., Louis Vuitton, New York magazine, Rolex Watch U.S.A., Saab, Variety, and The Waldorf-Astoria.
