It has been more than 25 years since Andrew Schapirograduated from Calvert School, and in that time, he has gone on to build brands, teams, and products across a variety of industries. A member of Calvert’s Board of Trustees, Andrew recently joined Calm, an online mindfulness platform, as the company’s first Executive Creative Director. Before that, he spent seven years at Airbnb, where he led an award-winning rebranding, grew a formidable creative team, and helped launch the company’s print magazine.
He credits his days at Calvert with directly influencing his career.
“Being a designer and creative director requires more than creativity. It requires the ability to clearly communicate your ideas and advocate for the ideas of others…” he said. “I see a clear connection between the way I handle a creative pitch and the way I presented in Twelfth Age.”
