Meet Our Judges: Grace Lee, AD, Priest+Grace

Welcome to the thirteenth annual 3x3 International Illustration Awards, over the next several weeks we will be introducing you to our international jury of art directors, designers, publishers and illustrators.

First up, Grace Lee the co-founder of Priest+Grace, a design company in New York. Along with partner Robert Priest, the group’s clients have included O, The Oprah Magazine, Newsweek, Adobe, WebMD, Reuters, Bloomberg Markets and Peter G. Peterson Foundation. They were the former creative directors and founding partners of Howler for which they concepted and designed all the visual elements of the brand, including the logo, magazine, website and the well-received business cards (red and yellow caution cards). Robert and Grace have also launched a publication about soccer called Eight by Eight (8by8mag.com) that’s pushing the limits of what a magazine could be.

Grace has received awards for design from the Society of Publication Designers, American Illustration, Print Magazine and American Society of Magazine Editors. Grace served as a judge for the SPD, ASME, American Illustration, Society of Illustration and CRMA.

Grace will be judging our professional categories.


What will Grace be looking for?

“I’ll be looking for an emotional connection with the illustration in addition to the ‘How did they do that?’ quality.”

The 3x3 International Illustration Awards Show is open to all illustrators in all countries. There is a separate jury for each of our three shows: Professional, Student and Picture Book. For full details download our Call for Entries pdf, to enter go to our homepage.
