The 40 Most Famous Graphic Designers in the World in 2024 (2024)

The Secret Ingredients of Famous Graphic Designers

What makes a famous graphic designer? There’s no single magic formula, but all the top graphic designers on our list have pushed design boundaries in their own ways.

Some bring radical new innovations, while others slowly change design culture through long careers and iterative contributions to the field. Many top graphic designers have broken boundaries simply by being who they are, in a field historically dominated by white males in Europe and the United States.

The famous graphic designers on our list do have a few things in common, though. If you’re hoping to follow in the footsteps of the greats, you might want to pay attention to these points.

Iconic works and designs

Graphic designers often achieve fame and lasting influence by creating a truly iconic design or body of work. This design might, for example, be a corporate logo or typographic design, such as Paul Rand’s famous 1950s IBM logo or Max Miedinger’s Helvetica font. Others have shaped contemporary design via album covers, innovative magazine design or packaging design.

Some designers’ lasting influence comes from a general approach to their work that becomes iconic. For example, Alvin Lustig was one of the first famous graphic designers to treat book cover design as an art form, while April Greiman was one of the earliest contemporary designers to use computers in graphics at a time when this was still highly uncommon.

Innovative and unique style

For lasting fame in the design world, you need a unique style that sets you apart. This element is as true in the past as it is today.

Aaron Douglas, for example, was a notable African American designer in the 1930s, known for using Art Deco and Ancient Egyptian stylistic influences to create a unique visual language. Today, the work of famous graphic designers like Morag Myerscough is immediately recognizable by their distinctive use of color, space and unique experiential approach.

Social media influence and visibility

Unlike most of the great names on this list, today’s famous graphic designers have a new sphere of influence to consider: Social media.

Channels like Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest drive direct audience engagement with brands and creators, which can be the difference between languishing in obscurity and shooting to global recognition. Talented graphic designers looking for fame in 2024 must be social media savvy and have a strong, authentic online presence.

Social media has also influenced design styles, as organic sharing and virality have become core aspects of marketing and branding campaigns.

5 Top Graphic Designers Chosen by Supersiders

As global leaders in graphic design, including advertising design, illustration, motion graphics, videography and branding, Superside’s creative team has unique insight into the best graphic designers working today.

I asked our talented team to share their top graphic design heroes and tell us why they love these icons’ work.

1. Jessica Walsh

Jessica Walsh has run her studio, &Walsh, in New York City since 2019. Her illustrious career includes seven years partnering with Stefan Sagmeister as Sagmeister&Walsh.

This designer is known for her fearless use of color and a cutting-edge, surrealist aesthetic, as well as her activism and support for women and non-binary people in design.

Jessica produces incredible work and never compromises on quality. It’s impressive to witness people successfully selling highly creative and out-of-the-box work to ‘corporate’ customers, which isn’t something we see every day. When she assumed leadership at Sagmeister & Walsh, she stood out as one of the very few female agency heads/founders, which is truly inspirational and impactful.

Jon Contino is a New York-based contemporary graphic designer with a unique style that combines historical design aesthetics, street art and hand-drawn lettering. He runs his own studio and boasts an impressive client list. Contino has received several awards in the U.S. and abroad.

I believe that Jon is one of a kind, adding so much personality to the brand in general, whether discussing branding or delving deeper into logo or identity creation for a brand. I especially love the way he mixes hand-drawn elements with digital ones; I think that makes him unique and inspires me to leave my personal mark on projects, whether digitally or in print."

Goodman held his first solo gallery exhibition at the Richard Taittinger Gallery in 2021.

Goodman inspired me earlier in my career, especially when I was delving more into lettering. He shared perspectives as a freelance designer primarily focusing on lettering, which was a path I also wanted to pursue. I was drawn to follow his practices because of his rawness, not only in his work but also as a professional.

20 Most Influential Graphic Designers of All Time

The term “graphic design” didn’t become commonplace until around the 1950s. Early graphic designers were sometimes called “commercial artists,” while visual communication in advertising was seen as secondary to text until surprisingly recently.

Today, thanks to many of the pioneers on this list, graphic design is a crucial element of contemporary marketing and communication strategies.

6. Saul Bass

Saul Bass (1919-1996), one of the 20th century’s most famous graphic designers, created some of the top iconic movie posters and title sequences of the 1950s. If you’ve seen Hollywood classics like Psycho, The Man With the Golden Arm, and North by Northwest, you’ll be familiar with his work.

Bass was one of the first designers to move away from garish portraits of stars on film posters, pioneering a new, simplified, minimal style with organic forms and fluid hand-lettering. He also designed well-known logos for brands such as Kleenex and AT&T.

7. Cipe Pineles

(Source: Eye Magazine)

Cipe Pineles (1908-1991) made her name in magazine design at a time when men dominated the profession. From 1937, she was an art director at Glamour. She subsequently moved on to Seventeen, Charm and Mademoiselle.

Unusually for the 1940s and 50s, Pineles was a lover of modern art and often commissioned magazine artwork from painters such as Ben Shahn, Lucille Corcos and Andy Warhol.

In 1943, Cipe became the first woman admitted to the New York Art Director’s Club and the first woman inducted into the Art Directors Hall of Fame.

8. Charles Dawson

Charles Dawson (1889-1981) was a Chicago-based commercial artist who worked in the 1920s and 30s. As one of the few Black professional designers of the early 20th century, he faced racism and exclusion, including, at times, the denial of credit for his work. Nonetheless, he became a well-known commercial and editorial illustrator, working on product illustrations, posters and more.

Dawson was the only Black artist included in the Century of Progress Fair held in Chicago in 1933-34. He also designed and self-published a book of linocut portraits, ABCs of Great Negroes, celebrating the achievements of Black and African leaders.

9. Lester Beall

Lester Beall (1903-1969) was a self-taught graphic designer who pioneered using visual design as a primary communication tool in advertising and marketing.

Before the 1930s, visual imagery usually came second to text in commercial design, and Beall’s use of strong, clear iconography and color was a radical departure.

Among Beall’s best-known works is a remarkable set of posters promoting the Rural Electrification Administration’s campaign to bring electricity to rural United States.

10. Paul Rand

(Source: PaulRand.Design)

Paul Rand (1914-1996) was the art director and graphic designer who created some of the best-known American brand designs of the 20th century. His legacy of corporate logo designs includes iconic work for IBM, UPS, Enron, Westinghouse and ABC.

Rand was one of the earliest proponents in the U.S. of the International Typographic Style, a modernist-inspired movement that profoundly influenced midcentury graphic design.

Rand was known for his simple, clean, impactful corporate identity design approach. Variations on many of his original logos are still in use today.

11. Abram Games

(Source: AbramGames.com)

“Maximum meaning, minimum means.”

This was British designer Abram Games’ (1914-1996) graphic design philosophy.

Games built his name creating over 100 official posters during the Second World War. His style was unique for the time, using gradients, flat color planes and minimalist geometric shapes and stencils to drum up support for Britain’s wartime efforts. He went on to an illustrious career in commercial, television and book design.

12. Alvin Lustig

Alvin Lustig (1915-1955) is best known for his cutting-edge book designs, revolutionizing the appearance of book covers in the 1940s.

At the time, the most common approach to book design was to supply one image—often garish or overly literal—summarizing the book’s contents. Lustig’s approach was to read the book and translate its content, style and atmosphere into a unique design.

He was strongly influenced by Modernist art movements such as the Bauhaus movement. Although Lustig died prematurely at just 40, his simplified shapes, flat colors and clean typography continue to influence graphic design today.

13. Jacqueline Casey

Jacqueline Casey (1927-1992) was an American graphic artist and poster designer best known for her work with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 1955-1989. She was strongly influenced by the Swiss design style she first encountered while working with Swiss designer Thérèse Moll.

Casey was known for her precise technical execution and intelligent use of design parameters such as the grid. Despite her tendency towards visual minimalism, she loved wordplay and visual puns and often incorporated these elements into her designs.

14. Massimo Vignelli

Italian graphic designer Massimo Vignello (1931-2014) co-founded Vignelli Associates with his wife, Lella, in 1971. Initially trained in architecture, he moved to New York in 1966 and headed up the New York branch of Unimark International.

At Unimark, Vignello produced his most enduring and famous design: An abstracted, geometric map of the New York City Subway system. The new map was easy for commuters to understand and follow, liberated from literal representation of the city above ground.

He was committed to the idea that good design always involved understanding the user's true needs.

15. Milton Glaser

Milton Glaser’s (1929-2020) most enduring legacy is his famous “I ❤️ NY” logo of the 1970s, which still adorns posters, mugs, tourist T-shirts and more.

Glaser and three friends founded Push Pin Studios in New York in 1954. Over the next twenty years, the firm grew into one of the city’s most respected graphic design firms.

Beyond the iconic logo, Glaser is known for his poster design: He created over 400 posters, displaying his love of psychedelic color, silhouette and bold outlines.

16. Ikko Tanaka

Ikko Tanaka (1930-2002) is widely considered the “father of Japanese graphic design.”

Tanaka combined his deep knowledge of Japanese calligraphy and aesthetics with Western-style geometric images and bright colors, creating a uniquely modern hybrid style.

He often worked with fashion designers, including Hanae Mori, Kenzo, Issey Miyake, and with the Japanese homeware brand Muji. Tanak is also known for his book and poster design, often using text and typography as a graphic medium.

17. Alan Fletcher

British graphic designer Alan Fletcher (1931-2006) founded the studio Fletcher/Forbes/Gill in 1962, later becoming the global design superpower Pentagram.

Fletcher was responsible for some of the previous century’s iconic brand identities, including boundary-pushing work for Penguin Books, Pirelli, the Victoria & Albert Museum and Reuters. His work for Penguin Books in the 1960s, in particular, shaped a brand identity for the publisher that remains instantly recognizable today.

18. Sheila Levrant de Brettenville

Sheila Levrant de Brettenville (b. 1940) is one of the most influential feminist graphic designers of the 20th century. In 1971, she founded CalArts’ first dedicated design program for women.

In 1990, she became director of the Yale University Graduate Program in Graphic Design and was the first woman ever to receive tenure at the Yale University School of Art.

19. Archie Boston

Archie Boston (b. 1943) is a trailblazing graphic designer and educator. Based in Los Angeles, he established Archie Boston Graphic Design in the 1970s and was the first Black designer elected president of the Los Angeles Art Director’s Club. He was also the first Black designer to receive the American Institute for Graphic Arts (AIGA) Fellows Award in 2007.

Boston is known for designs with courageous, hard-hitting messages that don’t shy away from the realities of racism and discrimination, often with a touch of dry humor.

Her design work contributed significantly to creating early personal computer interfaces that were accessible, intuitive and fun.
