As the designer behind the logo, packaging and advertising campaigns for brands such as Marc Jacobs and Céline, New York based graphic designer Peter Miles is widely recognized as one of the most prominent art directors within the fashion industry.
Miles began his career in 1991 co-founding London based graphic design agency Fuel with Royal College of Art classmates Damon Murray and Stephen Sorrell. The agency quickly gained renown for its minimalistic aesthetic and steadily began securing contracts with the likes of Diesel, Levi’s, MTV Europe and Adidas and in 1998 began producing film shorts and directing advertising campaigns. Miles began his creative partnership with Juergen Teller through Fuel, helping to design layouts for the books such as ‘Go Sees’, ‘Tracht’ and ‘More’. In 2004 Miles left Fuel in order to pursue a solo career in New York. The designer has since established his own publishing company Steidl-Miles, a sub-division within German publishing group Steidl and has released over twenty books in collaboration with Juergen Teller.
