Terry Jones, i-D Editor-In-Chief
“It’s all about steel toe caps and whip cracks…”
Terry Jones is the Editor-In-Chief, Creative Director and Publisher of i-D. The first issue of i-D was created at his home studio and published in the form of a hand-stapled fanzine with text produced on an IBM golfball typewriter. He has also edited and art directed numerous books including Catching the Moment, Smile i-D and i-D Covers: 1980-2010 and has curated many international exhibitions and advertising campaigns. With a personal approach to art direction he often refers to as ‘controlled chaos’, Terry continues to discover and nurture creative collaborations with photographers, writers, stylists and graphic designers. After more than thirty years in print, Terry’s enthusiasm is unfailing and his energetic artistic vision continues to inspire.
“I took my inspiration from Spain itself – I grew up there as a child and soaked up it’s culture. The bag is a mix of the matador and the flamenco gypsy with passionate red and religious black.”
Judy Blame is a stylist, jeweller, designer and art director. His aesthetic helped define i-D’s visual style throughout the 80s, with his signature cut-and-paste collage effect appearing on the covers of The Madness Issue, March 1986, and The Surreal Issue, April 1988. Since the early 80s Judy has been designing accessories endlessly, using scavenged chains, safety pins, rope, string, bottle tops, champagne corks, feathers and buttons; all re-worked and refined into fabulous fashions.
Edward Enninful, i-D Consultant Fashion Director
“I wanted to keep my bag sophisticated and classic. I always seem to wear black so I chose to stick with that and play with texture instead.”
Edward Enninful was born in Ghana and moved to London with his family as a young child. Possessing a natural flair for fashion, he was spotted on the tube, aged 16, by Nick Knight who consequently asked him to model for i-D. 1991, Edward was appointed Fashion Director of i-D, becoming the youngest ever Fashion Director of an international magazine. Enninful held this position until Spring 2011 when he was appointed Fashion and Style Director of W, whilst continuing to consult for i-D.
