Creative Heroes #3 – Richard Turley interviews Jop van Bennekom – 8 December

8 December 2022, 3.30pm-5pm GMT

Imagine you could interview your creative hero. Who would it be?

Our Creative Heroes series invites international creative directors to interview their heroes. And for them, in turn, to interview theirs.

The third event in our series sees Richard Turley, co-founder of Civilization magazine and editorial director of Interview magazine, interview Jop van Bennekom on 8 December.

Jop van Bennekom is a magazine-maker whose many roles include editor, publisher, art director and designer. 

Jop first established Re-Magazine as a personal platform when graduating from the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht in 1997. He then launched, with Gert Jonkers, the internationally acclaimed ‘fagazine’ BUTT in 2001, followed by Fantastic Man in 2005. In 2010, Jop and Gert launched, together with editor Penny Martin, The Gentlewoman.

Jop also designs The Happy Reader in collaboration with Penguin Books, works as consulting art director for numerous fashion brands, and divides his time between London and Amsterdam.
