They're often behind the scenes, letting their work take centre stage. But now Nathan Williams, founder and editor in chief of Kinfolk magazine and author of The Kinfolk Table, The Kinfolk Home, and The Kinfolk Entrepreneur, brings 80 of the most iconic and influential creative directors into the spotlight.
In The Eye, we meet fashion designers like Dries van Noten and Kris Van Assche. Directors like Spike Jonze and Melina Matsoukas. Tastemakers like Grace Coddington and Linda Rodin. We get insight into how these creative directors became who they are today, who sent them in that direction and their techniques for achieving their dreams. We learn how they developed their eye - and how they've used it to communicate visual ideas that have captured generations and will shape the future.
As an entrepreneur whose own work is defined by its specific and instantly recognisable aesthetic, Nathan Williams has a unique vision of contemporary culture that will make this an invaluable book for art directors, designers, photographers, stylists, and any creative professionals seeking inspiration and advice.
