Juan Carlos Pagan X New York Times Magazine for 50 Years Of Pride
In honor of 50 years since the Stonewall riots the New York Times Magazine asked acclaimed New York based designer, typographer, and creative director Juan Carlos Pagan to design the cover art for the #50YearsOfPride. “This is my first New York Times cover, and I cannot fully express how humbled and honored I am to have been given the opportunity to design this year’s section cover” notes Pagan of his collaboration.
Pagan turned his cover into a limited edition of 50 signed and numbered 24”x 36” artist prints available for purchase. Pagan is donating the money from the sale of these posters to the New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. “Support an organization doing good for people” writes the designer.
Pagan received his BFA from Parsons School of Design in 2006, and completed his postgraduate studies in typeface design at The Cooper Union in 2011. He has been honored for his work by The Type Directors Club, Communication Arts, The ADC, One Show, Graphis, Cannes Lions, Clios, Fastco, and Print Magazine among others. In 2013 Juan received the prestigious Art Directors Club Young Gun Award. In 2018 He received the Type Directors Club Ascenders Award which recognizes the work of designers who are 35 years of age and under for their remarkable achievement in design, typography, type design, and lettering. Currently the founding partner and Executive Creative Director of Sunday Afternoon, Pagan is more than proud to work with NYT for good reason.
