Boston Redesigns

boston12.30.08.jpgOur favorite Beantown publication got a Big Dig-sized face lift with a new design overseen by Patrick Mitchell, the man behind Fast Company‘s new look.

Starting with the January issue — on newsstands today — Boston replaces City Journal with Forecast, a front-of-book section that sounds a lot like New York‘s Intelligencer. Connoisseur combines the City Style and Food and Drink sections, while Examiner details the comings and goings of bigshots in the Boston metro area. The Menu consists of better restaurant listings, changed every month.

Boston‘s always been in the vanguard of city magazines,” editor James Burnett said in a statement. “We think with this redesign, we’ve broken new ground yet again.” Luckily, this new ground didn’t cost $22 billion.

Some images of the new sections after the jump.
