The new issue of Beauty Inc. is out today, completing a redesign trifecta of the Fairchild print products (Footwear News and WWD relaunched earlier this year). The Beauty Inc. update features a new type palette starring Commercial Type's unreleased Chiswick Sans and the Font Bureau's Benton Sans.
Best issue yet.
Special M Collections Issue . . .
Starting to hit our stride as we approach our first Fashion Week season since launching the weekly magazine last spring . . .
Excited to see our second special edition in print this week for New York Men's Fashion Week! Future editions will be published and distributed throughout Fashion Week this fall in NY, London, Milan and Paris. Commercial Type's Dala Prisma is featured in the city labels, and a red 'D' is used in the logo to signify 'Daily'.
A few pages from the second issue of the new weekly WWD . . .
I'm honored to have been given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform Women's Wear Daily — the Bible of the Fashion Industry — into a weekly magazine, now simply referred to as WWD. The first issue is a 248-page brick, cranked out in a week by a stellar design dept consisting of Nick Mrozowski, Geraldson Chua, Robyn Boehler and Jewelyn Butron. The cover story — The WWD Six — was photographed over 6 days and 3 continents by Nigel Parry.
Landed in New York earlier this week to find the new issue of Footwear News waiting for me, then returned to L.A. to find the new issue of AwardsLine. It's all a blur at this point . . .
The first redesigned issue of Footwear News is out today, completing a project that began with the launch of footwearnews.com last month (see earlier post below). The print and digital products are linked visually by a consistent type palette featuring Finch and Benton Sans (Font Bureau/WebType) and a minimal color palette of teal and red.
My redesign of FootwearNews.com went live today, my first project for Fairchild Fashion Media since Jay Penske acquired the group from Conde Nast last August. The new design is image-focused and features an entirely new type palette for the brand anchored by David Jonathan Ross's new serif Finch (WebType). The redesign of the weekly print magazine follows next month!
