Dear Readers,

Next week we’re going to honor our first ever Top 10 Under 40 makers and influencers of the year. These ten (actually 14 people, but 10 companies) have been carefully nominated and selected by our editorial teams and outside experts* to represent what’s up and coming in our world of design and food. They come from all over the country, cross different skill sets, and work in different mediums, but they all have begun to affect our lives at home in this country.

They will all be transported to our offices in NYC next Wednesday for a one day gathering, including a collaborative Creative Session in the afternoon, their presentation at our final Maker Talk in the evening and then a group dinner in SoHo. We want to set a precedent for bringing creative minds together in a collaborative atmosphere, the fruit of which is shared with all of our readers.

We invite you all to attend our event next week (tickets below) and to follow the event on the site & social in photography, text and video.

Happy Holidays from all of us to all of you!

Maxwell Ryan, founder of AT Media
