Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth: From Pentagram to Partnership
TDC Salon: September 28, 2017. “From Pentagram to Partnership” with Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth of Standards Manual
Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth are the founding partners of Standards Manual, an independent publishing imprint founded in 2014, and Order, a design office—both located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Reed and Smyth met at Pentagram while working under the direction of Michael Bierut for the last six years. They share what started their paths to design, how they created a publishing imprint as a side project, and when they knew it was time to leave their dream jobs.
