Danko Steiner, design director at Vogue, is leaving to pursue photography after four years at the magazine. Anna Wintour has tapped Raúl Martinez, founder and chief creative officer of AR New York, a full-scale branding and advertising agency, as “creative consultant” to replace Steiner. “I can’t begin to explain how excited I am to be joining forces with Anna once again,” Martinez told Women’s Wear Daily.
Martinez will continue with his agency while working with Vogue, where his duties will include “work[ing] with the magazine and vogue.com’s art, design and photography and offer[ing] input on Vogue’s overall image and brand.”
