Renowned fashion photographer and music video director Nick Knight made his name in 1982 when he published photographic series Skinheads while still a student. This led then i-D editor Terry Jones to commission him, and in 1990 Nick became the magazine’s commissioning picture editor. Since then he’s shot covers for Vogue, campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and Alexander McQueen, and record covers for David Bowie, George Michael and Massive Attack. In recent years he’s turned his hand to music videos for Björk, Kanye West and Lady Gaga. He’s also the founder of ShowStudio.
Kate Moross is a graphic designer, artist and art director, who founded Studio Moross in 2012, a studio now famed for its instantly recognisable, colourful and energetic aesthetic. From tour visuals for One Direction to the map for Margate’s Dreamland and the identity for MTV’s movie and TV awards, Kate’s work spans all media. Kate has a client list that includes the likes of Vice, Sony, Adidas and Nickelodeon plus a plethora of musicians such Katy Perry, Jessie Ware, Years & Years and Sam Smith.
Illustrator Kelly Anna started off as a fashion illustrator, tasked with live illustrating catwalk shows at fashion week. There, she learned to work quickly and capture form and expression with a unique flair. Her career has also seen a stint at Illustrated People, designing prints later worn by the likes of Beyoncé, Cara Delevingne and Foals. Now she’s carving a solid niche for her effervescent figurative works, working on prints and graphics for the likes of Nike and Stella McCartney, as well as publishing her own colouring book Super Female.
