In order to celebrate AD’s 200th issue, the magazine released a list of the 200 most influential people in the design and art world right now. AD: 200, as it is called, the list contains names such as Kelly Wearstler, Karl Lagerfeld, and Wes Anderson. However, many other famous names can be found in this exclusive list of designers and influencers who have been daring enough to reshape our world as we know it. Take a look at the list below!
