Time Names New Design Director

dwtime1.jpgOn New Year’s Eve day, Time magazine announced the promotion of D.W. Pine to the position of design director of the weekly magazine.

Pine will be replacing longtime art director Arthur Hochstein, who Pine had worked under as a deputy for nine years. In a memo to the staff, managing editor Richard Stengel praised Pine for his work for the magazine, including designing more than 30 covers, working as art director for the special Michael Jackson issue this summer and overseeing Time‘s “efforts on the new tablet digital platform.”

Pine, a former sportswriter, joined Time from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, where he was features design director, Stengel said.

“As a designer, he is always seeing around corners–and he gets more done in a day than anyone I know,” Stengel added. “D.W.’s work has a strong, clean, and spare esthetic and he has one of the great all-time Time temperaments: he’s never ruffled. He seems to come by this disposition naturally; his parents were subscribers who used to keep Time covers in a 3-ring binder.”

Hochstein, who Pine is replacing, was named art director in 1994 and had served under seven managing editors during his long career at Time. He is retiring but will continue to work for the magazine as a contributing designer.
