Money magazine has promoted Patty Alvarez to design director. Alvarez has been with the magazine since 2012, when she joined as art director. She had been serving as interim design director since August.
“In the past five months Patty has put her own stamp on the book, employing a wider array of illustrators and photographers and creating bright, elegant covers,” wrote Craig Matters, Money’s managing editor, in a note announcing the change. “Her first cover, in fact, What to Do with $1,000, was our best seller this year other than the double issue.”
Matters’ full memo is below.
