New Visual Artists


Part of 2015 NVA Anne Jordan’s magazine cover, with Mitch Goldstein.

For years, Print has featured our annual New Visual Artists issue—our 15 under 30 list, profiling the most promising rising talents in graphic design, advertising, illustration, digital media, photography and animation.

This collection is invitation-only. But, our choices are drawn from nominations made by art directors, designers, critics and industry professionals. Self-nominations are also welcome. The issue offers much-deserved exposure each year to 15 young artists who—like former NVAs Jessica Walsh, Eddie Opara, Timothy Goodman, Frank Chimero, Jessica Hische and many others—have striking talent and are likely to go on to become tomorrow’s design leaders.

Those chosen will be featured in Print‘s Fall 2017 issue. If you are an art director or design professional and would like to nominate someone for the competition (which is completely free), please fill out the form below. Designers who turn 30 on or after Sept. 20, 2017, cannot be accepted.

Please note that autofill will not work with this submission form. You must type in each field or your autofill text will not be submitted.
