Molly Heintz is a founding partner and the managing director of the editorial consultancy Superscript. She is a contributing editor at The Architect’s Newspaper, and in the past she has led communications departments at the architecture firms of Gensler and Rockwell Group, where she co-edited the book Spectacle by David Rockwell and Bruce Mau (Phaidon 2006, 2013). As a 2010 fellow at the Philip Johnson Glass House she helped launch the interactive site and developed a social media strategy for this National Trust property. She holds an MA in the History of Art and Architecture from Harvard University and an MFA in Design Criticism from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Her research and writing focuses on the intersection of design and media, and her work has appeared in Fast Company, The Art Newspaper, AIGA Voice, Giornale dell’Architettura, Interior Design, and the Journal of Decorative Arts.

Superscript is an editorial consultancy founded in 2011 that specializes in writing, editing, and content strategy across a broad range of media channels and platforms. Superscript finds new, effective ways of communicating ideas to broad audiences through accessible and engaging publications and programming. The four founding partners of Superscript, all writers and editors from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds, were fortuitously brought together by the pioneering MFA Design Criticism program at New York’s School of Visual Arts. The Superscript team’s work is informed by previous experience in industrial design, graphic design, book publishing, design education, research, marketin,g and communications. An interest in how design is presented in the public realm is the basis for Superscript’s independent projects, including exhibitions, publications, and events like the Architecture and Design Book Club and “On Display,” an 2013 interactive installation and conversation series at the Museum of Arts and Design. In 2012, Superscript was named an “American Influencer” in architecture and design media by Surface magazine, and the firm’s projects have been covered by Design Observer, Unbeige, The New York Daily News, and Huffington Post, among other publications.
