It’s a family affair! EYEWEAR Magazine, our website, and social media initiatives are the result of a creative group effort. Next to contributions from our regular team members, EYEWEAR features the work of a multitude of free creative agents, some of whom have become a constant presence over the years. This segment is dedicated to showcasing some of the creative minds that lend the magazine its distinct look from issue to issue.
