Principal / Creative Director
Daniel Stark is Chief Problem Solver. Perhaps its his diverse background in advertising, publishing, apparel, media and design…perhaps its the burgeoning inventor inside of him. Whatever it is, Stark attempts to make every solution count by being simple, elegant and smart. In 2003, he opened Stark Design and ever since, he draws energy from the talented individuals that make up the team.
Stark has created well-known advertising campaigns, identity programs, packaging, editorial and product design for a diverse assortment of brands, services and companies. Early in his career, Stark worked for renowned figures Milton Glaser, Fabien Baron, and Annie Leibovitz. Later, he worked on the staffs of Harper’s Bazaar, GQ and US magazines, served as the V.P. Creative Director for Ann Taylor and Nielsen Business Media. Stark created and co-authored the book Stoked: The Evolution of Action Sports, patented a magnetic binding system and was recently lauded by Al Gore for Realitree. Stark holds a BFA from Parsons School of Design and lives in New York City.
Nancy Herrmann may prefer to be snowboarding or sailing but, as an accomplished designer, trained architect, published design journalist, patent holder and prolific sports blogger, she’s also a perfect fit for Stark Design, where she leads packaging and retail projects.
Nancy began her career working for Michael Kors and Norma Kamali before heading back to school for two Masters degrees. She moved to Los Angeles to work with Virgin Entertainment Group and later moved back to New York to join L’Oréal Paris as Art Director, where she stayed for more than six years creating packaging, merchandising and marketing collateral. In the publishing world, Nancy’s was a design editor at I.D. (International Design) Magazine and has written for Wallpaper*, Frank, Men’s Health and Architectural Record, among others. Nancy holds a Master of Architecture degree and a MFA Digital Design and Technology degree from Parsons School of Design as well as a B.S. degree in Clothing and Textiles from Virginia Tech. Nancy resides in New York City, when she’s not pursuing a sporting adventure.
Carly may have grown up in a small Pennsylvania town, but she thinks big. Since joining the team in 2010, she has her hands in everything, from packaging to branding and this website’s current design. She’s part cruise director for anything we need to get done, part health guru and foodie. Out of the office, Carly is most likely blending green smoothies and dehydrating carrot crackers, or traveling the world and dancing in the desert. She holds a BBA in Design & Management from Parsons School of Design.
Finally! The simple building blocks of LEGO have been excessively engineered to expedite the production and projection of paper airplanes. Just think how productive society will be now that the menial task of crafting planes is off our hands! Hit the jump for a video, but turn down your volume, lest the distasteful soundtrack poison your ears.
