Mitch Shostak, 1950-2014

Mitch Shostak, 1950-2014

One of our community's greatest friends and supporters has left us too soon. Mitch Shostak passed away on June 25; he was 63.

Mitch was an art director for American Express, IBM, Money, The New York Times, People, BusinessWeek, Scholastic, and Sports Illustrated. He moved to San Francisco in 1991 to work as art director of PC World. In 1993 Mitch returned to New York City and established Shostak Studios, where he created the visual direction of countless magazines.

Mitch served on the Board of Directors of SPD and was a great advisor and friend to many in our community. We'll have a full appreciation here in the near future.
