Meet Tim Leong, Creative Director at Entertainment Weekly. 

What’s the most valuable lesson you learned from one of your own mentors? 

If it’s worth doing, if it’s worth doing right. That was something my high school journalism teacher, Mr. Hall, always said. From the biggest projects to the smallest minutiae he taught me to take pride in everything little thing.

What's your career motto?

Work hard and be nice to people. The job can be stressful enough so I think it’s vital that the work environment be a good one. So be kind. Be considerate. And let’s make something incredible.
