About Cyrill GUTSCH
Raised in Germany’s Black Forest, Cyrill Gutsch moved to Munich for a career in design, becoming a creative director by the age of 22. His projects for the likes of Levi’s took him across Europe, before he moved to New York in 2004. Since then he has used the global reach of his work to make a difference to the environment: through Parley for the Oceans he collaborates with brands such as Adidas and Corona to reduce the impact of plastics on our seas. We caught up with him to discuss how New York has enabled him to flourish creatively, the things to which he attributes Parley for the Oceans’ success, and favorite places to spend time when in NYC.
