Marvin Scott Jarrett first made his mark on the media world setting trends in publishing with his magazines Ray Gun and Bikini. In 1999, Jarrett launched NYLON and has expanded the brand into an unstoppable force. Jarrett’s personal interest in music and unique vision has led to a number of internationally acclaimed directorial collaborations with groups such as the Academy Is..., Eisley, Kill Hannah, the Plastiscines, The Horrors, and Good Charlotte, whose music video earned him an MTV Australia Video Award. As New York Times design critic Stephen Heller wrote of Jarrett’s particular genius, “[he] astutely realized that new sounds and attitudes required a new mouthpiece.”
