Creative New Yorker: Jeff Staple
September 3, 2010
Somebody who definitely embodies the term “Creative New Yorker” is Founder/ Creative Director of Staple Design, Jeff Staple. Staple Design was founded in 1997 in NYC. The three operating parts of Staple design are a clothing line, creative agency & retail store (Reed Space) located at 151 Orchard St. in Lower East Side. The Reed Space also is a full functioning Art Gallery as well.
One of thee most notable & notorious designs was the collaboration they did with Nike for the Pigeon Dunk sneaker. People camped out for days to obtain this sneaker. It got so crazy that a riot formed and even made the news headlines. Staple Design’s clients include Kia, Timberland, New Balance, Airwalk, Microsoft, & Sony just to name a few. Jeff Staple is definitely an inspiration to any creative/creator. On every project/collaboration Staple Design raises the bar & sets a blueprint. They’re designs are not based on hype or fad forcasting but have more so a sense of authenticity to them. If your ever in NYC definitely stop by the Reed Space and check out Jeff’s Staple genius first hand. Also follow Jeff on twitter .
