If you’ve read USA Weekend magazine in your Sunday paper, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve seen Leon Lawrence III’s amazing work. As USA Weekend‘s design director, he’s worked with photographers, copywriters, and other fellow creatives to design the magazine from top to bottom for almost 15 years.

We talked about Leon’s everyday work with the magazine, along with his beginnings as art director of Emerge magazine, his stint as former vice-president of the Organization of Black Designers, and his book “Career Diary of a Publication Design Director“. Leon has an incredible back story and loads and loads of knowledge for current and up and coming design students.

All these gifts just in time for Christmas! Enjoy!
