Time Inc. Veteran Heads to ESPN

John Korpics, who has been contributing his design ideas to Time Inc. sporadically since 1995, is leaving to become Vice President, Creative Director of Print and Digital Media for ESPN The Magazine and its website. Adweek reports that this is a new position at ESPN, one which will combine print and digital design under Rob King, the magazine’s Senior Vice President.

Korpics, who was most recently Creative Director for Fortune, said of leaving Time, “It’s been a bittersweet time for me. I’ve kind of grown up at this company. If it hadn’t been this job and this opportunity, I’d still be at Fortune.

His first day will be September 6.
