About The International:
CEO Alexandre R. Labrie studied at Columbia and decided to focus entirely on The International shortly thereafter. The team has always been quite young, mostly in their twenties, and have grown in size from 6 to a total of 21 last quarter. Alexandre launched the company from a desire to help people better understand cultural differences, and a strong indignation at the media’s deficiency leading up to the war in Iraq. The International is an independent company.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons The New School for Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
