The Most Creative People in business 2018

Joshua Kissi is a photographer and creative director best known for starting the fashion-forward men’s blog Street Etiquette in 2008, which has since become a creative agency with clients including Adidas, Starbucks, and the U.S. Open. In the fall of 2017, Kissi and partner Karen Okonkwo launched TONL, a stock-photography company that offers original images that feature people of color and different sexual orientations doing everyday things: working out, cooking dinner, hanging at the beach. Companies such as Google, Facebook, PopSugar, and Sundial Brands have signed up for the subscription service, deploying TONL’s images in their marketing, editorial content, and internal presentations.

TONL also departs from typical stock photography practices by telling the stories behind the models it uses, partnering with the Urban Indian Health Institute, for example, to create a stock photo series featuring Native Americans and Alaska Natives in spaces outside of reservations.
