9. The Graphic Designer: Jessica Walsh


25, Chelsea

Jessica Walsh grew up in a home whose backyard straddled state borders. “There was a stone that said CT on one side and NY on the other,” she tells us. “I always liked to be on the NY side.” Still, she didn’t move here until after graduating from RISD—literally the next day—to take a job at Pentagram. Since then, she’s been art director at Printmagazine, had work displayed in Paris’s Les Arts Decoratifs, had work in both the New York Times and the Times Magazine, and designed a Levi’s billboard that once graced Soho and now hangs in Paris. What does her future hold? “I have a book I’ve been working on a while I want to finally publish. A curated design website I’ve been working on, which I will launch,” she tells us. “Most importantly—make smart, beautiful, interesting work.” (Photos by Crystal Gwyn)
