Writing this roundup of incredible designers over 60 was really exciting for a lot of reasons. I wasn’t familiar with most of these people, so finding new (to me) artists to discover and enjoy is always refreshing. I loved seeing the strong aesthetic voices they all have. Social media trends and pressures don’t play into their work, which stands proudly with a clear and refined style, honed over the past few decades.
Writing this piece presented more challenges than I expected, because many artists over 60 aren’t broadcasting their ages or popping up in my social media feeds. But the great thing about our work here at Design*Sponge is that it’s our job to look harder find untold stories and help those voices to be heard.
We’d love to hear from you on how we can make this a space that celebrates creatives of all ages and a resource for those that might just be joining the online design world for the first time. Have a look, and I hope you enjoy what they bring to the conversation as much as I do. —Erin
