ALBUQUERQUE, NM—Pyragraph is pleased to announce the addition of Clarke Condé as Pyragraph’s new Creative Director. Condé brings decades of experience in traditional print media as a photographer and newspaper editor in a career that has focused on visually telling the stories of working professionals.
“This is a big step in Pyragraph’s continuing mission to share authentic voices of working creatives, in an entertaining and visually compelling format,” said Pyragraph’s Publisher Peri Pakroo. “We’re proud of what we have built editorially since our launch in 2013, and ready to expand with similarly high-quality creative content. Clarke will help guide Pyragraph’s visual style as well as our expanding social media presence. Plus, as Clarke is a top-notch photographer you can absolutely expect more photos at Pyragraph.”
“Joining Pyragraph gives me the opportunity to make art of the business and culture of those that make art and culture their business,” said Condé. “I’m a photographer by trade, but an advocate for those that work for a living through the solidarity that comes from common struggles. I couldn’t be happier to join a publication that gives voice to the economics, culture and working lives of creative people.”
