Matthew Papa (GD ’04) was the 2008 winner of AIGA’s 50/50 books for Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook

After a number of years marketing books at various publishers, Matthew Papa decided to go back to school for graphic design so he could be on the creative side of publishing and design books instead. He had a BA in Philosophy from the University of Michigan so the AAS program was the perfect choice to acquire the knowledge and skills to pursue a career in graphic design. Matthew completed the AAS program in 2004 and did a short internship at Helicopter, then worked on the prototype for Domino magazine at Condé Nast. Soon after he found himself at Martha Stewart designing books and special issue magazines under the direction of Will van Roden, including Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook pictured here.

He has recently left Martha Stewart to strike out on his own.

  1. Beautiful work, Matt. I remember your pieces in Claudia’s Pub Design class were standout. I know you’ll be a huge success out on your own. Let’s collaborate on something fun. Jim
