Keir Novesky

Design Director

GQ, GQ Style and Pitchfork

New York, United States

I’ve now spent 13 years working as a design professional living in or around New York.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work at some of the most recognizable brands in media: Sports Illustrated, People magazine, ESPN, Entertainment Weekly, and now GQ, GQ Style and Pitchfork.

From being an Intern at Time Inc. in 2006 to becoming a Design Director at Condé Nast over a decade later, I’ve found that my experiences as a designer and art director are exceedingly specific but, at the same time, surprisingly broad.

I’ve obsessively set type. I’ve art directed photo shoots (and also have sheepishly stood in the corner during them). I’ve commissioned brilliant illustrators. I’ve designed and redesigned brand identities, layouts, sets, infographics, marketing campaigns, an invitation for a boss’s wedding, and whatever else I could get my hands on. I’ve worked alongside extremely talented people. I’ve painted, drawn, built and presented. I’ve been in charge and I’ve been sent for coffee.

All of which is to say, I’ve been blessed with opportunities to create things with great people and contribute to messages that important voices want the world to experience.
