For PRINT’s Spring 2016 issue—Hollywood: New York—the PRINT team partnered with photographer Brent Taylor of OMS Photo, photo assistant/digital tech Lilia Cretcher, and the makeup and hair stylings of Nicolae Rita, Ana Emiliano and Cari Duprey for Pro-Style-Crew Management.
Over the course of three days at the School of Visual Arts, the team photographed more than 50 of today’s most inspiring designers and creatives, from James Victore to Jessica Walsh to Chip Kidd to Eddie Opara to Michael Bierut to Maira Kalman to Emily Oberman to, well, everyone featured below.
