For a NYC charity empowering underserved kids through art, Stewart convinced James Nares, Diane Von Furstenberg, Cynthia Rowley, and 42 other renowned designers to help him create the identity.

Throughout his career, Stewart has used 3 guiding principles:

  1. Our work must provoke reaction.
  2. A good idea is always better than a great execution.
  3. We remain relevant by identifying the moments that matter.
