Young Guns

Young Guns recognizes the vanguard of creative professionals 30 years of age and under. Founded in 1996, the portfolio-based competition has grown to become one of the most coveted awards for young creatives around the globe. For many designers, art directors, illustrators, copywriters, photographers, filmmakers, animators and other creatives, being named a Young Guns winner is a sure sign of a skyrocketing career, as well as a source of validation for all of the stressful days and sleepless nights that have come with early successes.

Young Guns is more than just an award; it's an exclusive community of rebels and prodigies, unsung heroes and rising stars, all who network, mentor and collaborate together. Over the years, our roster has grown to include some exceptional talent, among them Stefan Sagmeister (YG1), Rei Inamoto (YG4), James Victore (YG1), Jessica Walsh (YG8), Alli Truch (YG2), Natasha Jen (YG3), Pablo Medina (YG3), Jon Contino (YG9), Scott Stowell (YG3), Lindsay Ballant (YG7), Alex Trochut (YG6), Dark Igloo (YG10), Anna Bond (YG12), Zipeng Zhu (YG13), The Daniels (YG14) and Cait Oppermann (YG15).

Jonas Lindstroem

Photographer, Director

Director and photographer Jonas Lindstroem has accomplished a wide range of work over a few short years, working for clients such as Hermes, Calvin Klein, Kenzo, Nike and Adidas.

His powerful music video for Kendrick Lamar's "Element" won a Gold for Best Music Video at last year?s Clios and inspired an art exhibit around its imagery and influences. Originally known for his fashion photography and the audacious textures and lighting of his work, he most recently revisited his roots, directing the Spring/Summer film campaign for Beyoncé?s athleisure brand, Ivy Park.

Based in both Berlin and London, with German with Swedish origins, he studied at the Arts University of Berlin and the London College of Communications, and graduated in Berlin in 2014.
