Contrary to what his name suggests, Bland Hoke is an exciting young designer on a global mission to inspire. Combining a unique background in public art with a love of the outdoors and cutting edge urban design, Bland collaborates with other creatives and stakeholders to bring forth fresh solutions and unexpected possibilities. Bland is the Staff Artist at Jackson Hole Public Art, and is the manager of Bland Design LLC. His process is a direct response to places and people, marked by a true understanding of contemporary design and a signature resourcefulness, courtesy of his Western roots.

Bland has received an Innovation by Design award from Fast Company, presented at Design INDABA in Cape Town, South Africa and recently installed a glowing ice wall at Teton Village. He thrives on building thoughtful public places, developing temporary artwork and designing a variety of projects that feature hammocks.
