Dean Langley began his ten-year tenure at i-D magazine in 2001, becoming the youngest art director of this legendary magazine in 2007. Langley’s collaborative spirit and keen sense of the diversity of image-making underpins his approach and, as art director of i-D, he brought innovative and established photographers including Jason Evans, Walter Pheiffer, Collier Schorr, Jurgen Teller and Wolfgang Tillmans into the editorial well alongside photographers at the start of their careers, such as Alasdair McLellan, Ryan McGinley, and Tyrone Lebon. In 2010, Langley founded [with Hanna Hanra] Beat magazine and was creative director for the first twelve issues, working with his closest photographic collaborators and introducing new talents such as Oliver Hadlee Pearch, Angelo Penetta, Clare Shilland, and Letty Schmiterlow. Dean Langley’s creative direction clients include Hermès, Marni, Nike, Topman, and Topshop. He is currently designing Dan Martensen’s five-year photographic collaboration with the seven Angulo siblings— the subjects of Crystal Moselle’s feature-length documentary film The Wolfpack. Langley is also the art director of Benedict Brink and Todd Jordan’s curatorial project The Spring Cleaning, a series of group exhibitions being staged at an operating Laundromat on Elizabeth Street, New York.
