Cipe Pineles

Hand-written, eye-popping, colorful—before its time

Cipe Pineles totally changed the world of editorial design during her reign. She was a powerful role model and a major creative inspiration for all those that came after her.

She could make an editorial spread come alive with eye-popping, colorful illustrations, often accompanied by hand-written typography, way before its time.

Not only was she a female creative in a very powerful role, but was one of the first women to hold the position of art director for a major magazine, opening the door for many that followed.
