Terry Jones, born in 1945 in Northampton, England, is the Editor-In-Chief, Creative Director and Publisher of i-D. He studied graphics at the West of England College of Art in Bristol but left when a favourite tutor (Richard Hollis) resigned. Terry married Tricia in 1968, later becoming the father of two children, Kayt and Matt, who are now professional photographers themselves. For more than 30 years Terry has established himself as one of the most experimental creative directors of his generation, from the covers of Vanity Fair and Vogue, where he was art director from 1972-77, to the innovative designs of i-D magazine, which he founded in 1980. The first issue of i-D was created at his home studio and published in the form of a hand-stapled fanzine with text produced on an IBM golfball typewriter. He has also edited and art directed numerous books including Catching the Moment, Smile i-D and i-D Covers: 1980-2010 and has curated many international exhibitions and advertising campaigns. With a personal approach to art direction he often refers to as ‘controlled chaos’, Terry continues to discover and nurture creative collaborations with photographers, writers, stylists and graphic designers. After thirty years in print, Terry's enthusiasm is unfailing and his energetic artistic vision continues to inspire.
