Graphic Design USA names Mike Spakowski a 2019 Person to Watch

Atomicdust is proud to announce that Graphic Design USA named our very own Mike Spakowski, Partner and Creative Director, to its list of 2019 People to Watch.

Graphic Design USA (GDUSA), a leading publication in design and business, has published the annual list for more than half a century, spotlighting giants of the industry like acclaimed graphic designer and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Saul Bass, iconic American designer Milton Glaser, and Italian modernist designer Massimo Vignelli, among others. The magazine sums it up perfectly: “For a designer, it’s ‘people watching’ at its best.”

This year’s 34-member class of People to Watch were chosen for their leadership, talent and newsworthiness. Among the other talented creatives included are Kimberly Arias of the Pew Research Center, Richard Palmer of Little Big Brands and fellow St. Louisan Antoinette D. Carroll of Creative Reaction Lab.

You can read GDUSA’s Q&A with Mike, where he shares his influences, insights and advice for new designers. (Our blog is also full of Mike’s expertise on designmarketing and branding.)

We couldn’t be prouder of Mike for joining the ranks of legends and future legends, though we aren’t surprised one bit.
