The new heroes of design

When we set out to profile the rising stars of graphic design, we didn’t expect to be confronted with quite such a broad range of influences. From the twentieth century neoplasticism of the De Stijl movement to the world of nature, and from people-watching in Paris to pictures of a cat, it seems there’s almost nothing that won’t spark an idea.

Also impressive is that, at a time when many recent graduates are feeling the dread of plunging into the job market for the first time, these young designers are all out there working, often freelance, and often for large companies such as Nike, New Zealand’s ASB Bank or The New York Times. Coming from all over the world, read on for our profiles of the new heroes who are here to take design to exciting new places.
