60 Innovators Shaping Our Creative Future

Lucas Dietrich


Artists, photographers, architects, fashion designers, product designers, street artists, graphic designers: all are helping to redefine our aesthetics, values, and ideas about the future.

Here, a group of international experts from twelve contemporary fields of creative practice—from fine art and photography to graphic design, architecture, and ecology—have each selected five people who are making significant contributions to the way we experience everyday life and visual culture. The resulting compendium contains hundreds of the most exciting projects and concepts being produced today.

Each section features an introduction by the editor and richly illustrated profiles of the five innovators. The featured artists and designers include Jonathan Harris and Ben Fry (Graphic Design); Swoon and Space Invader (Street Art); Taryn Simon and Christopher Williams (Photography); Miuccia Prada and Tom Ford (Fashion); and Wendy Seltzer and Natalie Jeremijenko (New Media).

The editors include

  • Paola Antonelli
  • Cecil Balmond
  • Charlotte Cotton
  • Alastair Fuad-Luke
  • Masoud Golsorski
  • Tom Himpe
  • Laura Houseley
  • Jon Ippolito
  • Julie Lasky
  • Tristan Manco
  • Jérôme Sans

Bold colors, stylish type sizes and faces, arresting full-page photographs, and sophisticated layout and design work together to make perusing this handsome compendium on currents in contemporary art one of the most exhilarating, page-turning experiences of the year…. Fascinating insights…. Highly recommended.
