Jeff Staple

22 Mar


Jeff Staple is a creative director, designer, and founder of NYC-based Staple Design Studio, which isn’t just a creative agency. It’s a multi-faceted beast of a company that also houses clothing lines, apparel collections, a retail store, an art gallery, and a magazine. It would be an understatement to say that Jeff is a busy guy. He’s been doing his thing for 15 years now, day in, day out and it seems like he is quite comfortable wearing many different hats. Just watch these videos and you’ll see why he’s so successful. He’s super bright, talented, and very driven. Jeff seems like a great motivator and I can’t wait to hear him give a lecture tomorrow at Virginia Tech with NYC-based designer and illustrator Sophia Chang. The lecture is called Creativity vs. Commerce: Getting In and Staying In, sponsored by Virginia Tech’s AIGA chapter and the Virginia Tech Student Hip-Hop Organization. If you are near by, you really should come and check them out. It’s bound to be great.

Jeff and Sophia, thank you so much for making a trip all the way to Virginia Tech to talk to us and our community. It’s really inspirational to know that people out there willing to take time out of their busy lives to talk with the Tech students and other local creatives.
