As the President and Creative Director of David Stark Design and Production, David Stark runs the world of event production and design in NYC. His clientele list ranges from big names like Beyoncé, to Condé Nast and Target. With the motto "elevating ordinary events to extra extraordinary experiences," it is no question that Stark is the king of design. He's written five books on design with his most recent book, "The Art of the Party," hitting stores this spring. We were lucky enough to sit down with the design maven for an exclusive interview to discuss upcoming projects and the secret behind his success.
