Runner’s World Names Design Director

Benjamen Purvis has been named Runner’s World’s new design director. Purvis comes to Runner’s World after serving as creative director at Men’s Journal for a little over a year.

“Ben is an immensely talented, experienced, versatile designer whose vision and leadership will influence not only the magazine but also our rapidly growing website, our upcoming tablet offerings and various other parts of the brand,” said David Willey, general manager of Rodale’s Active Living Group and editor-in-chief of Runner’s World.

Purvis’ changes will be first seen in the magazine’s October issue, which hits newsstands September 4.
