Changes Come to The New Yorker

From now on, The New Yorker is going to look just a little bit different. According to The New York Times, the magazine is revamping its table of contents and its fiction, Goings On About Town and Briefly Noted sections. In the video above, Wyatt Mitchell, The New Yorker’s creative director, discusses the new design.

If you have an eagle eye, you might notice the following updates:

The changes include a cleaner presentation of the table of contents and contributor pages. The most notable change may be on the ‘Goings On About Town’ pages, which start with a more distinctive presentation of the section’s opening image and include less detail on museum and show listings. The revised pages also highlight the work of the magazine’s critics.

David Remnick, The New Yorker’s editor-in-chief, is prepared for the inevitable complaints. He told the Times that if readers don’t appreciate the new look, “That’s O.K. Things settle down. Our bread and butter is the language and the reporting and the stories that we publish.”

Please feel free to complain about his reaction to complaints.

The New Yorker Names First Creative Director

The New Yorker has named Wyatt Mitchell its first Creative Director. Mitchell was most recently Condé Nast’s Digital Design Director. Pam McCarthy, Deputy Editor at the magazine, told WWD that a Creative Director was needed because the brand has expanded.

“Now so many new needs have exploded in so many different directions over the last 18 months that we needed something more,” explained Mitchell. “Wyatt’s command of digital technology, like his command of print, is so strong and is sure.”

Mitchell will join the New Yorker by the end of the year.
