Jennifer Miller is going from Cosmopolitan to metropolitan as the new photography editor of New York. The appointment was announced today by editor-in-chief Adam Moss. Miller has served as photography director at Cosmo since last year and previously spent seven years as photo director at Jane. Her experience also includes stints at George, Tar, and Magnum Photos, as well as producing a swell look book for Rag & Bone and teaching photography at Parsons. “Jennifer’s background is gloriously eclectic. She brings experience navigating all points on the art/commerce continuum,” said Moss in a statement. “I think her impact here will be pretty immediate.” Miller will soon begin consulting on fall projects and will officially join the New York staff after Labor Day. She replaces Jody Quon, who was snapped up by Stefano Tonchi to become creative director at W.

We have to tell you we’re getting pretty sick of Luke Hayman‘s annoying ability to garner awards from all corners of the earth. Not to mention his dashing good looks. But in the spirit of supporting the design community, we feel compelled to pass along the next in his unbelievable string of honors.
On October 4, Hayman will be honored at mediabistro.com’s 10th Anniversary Party, where 10 people from 10 disciplines will receive the prestigious Golden Boa Award, which sounds like either the top seed in a drag queen competition or a deadly venomous viper.
Among the other honorees are some people we like, too:
Dean Baquet, New York Times
Stephen Colbert, The Colbert Report
Adam Davidson, NPR
Jane Friedman, HarperCollins
Scott Goodson, Strawberry Frog
Tyler Hicks, New York Times
Adam Moss, New York Magazine
Craig Newmark, Craigslist
Ken Sunshine, Sunshine, Sachs & Associates
Congrats everyone, may you all look good in feathers.
We know they plan these schedules way in advance but, man, could the timing be any better for Luke Hayman to get grilled by Debbie Millman on today’s “Design Matters?” For Hayman (above right, with potty mouth George Lois), the past few months have gone something like this:
Tune in today at 3-4 EST and remember, it’s a call-in show: 1.866.472.5790.
You just can’t keep New York down. Between the NY Times Magazine and New York Magazine, pubs with “New York” in their titles claimed about half of the Society of Publication Designers Awards announced on Friday. We think the Janet Froelich-directed NY Times Magazine won about 13 awards, but we fell asleep after counting ten. Really, what else is new?
The better story comes on the heels of New York Magazine’s full-on domination of the Ellies: Adam Moss‘ magazine continues to breed envy in the hearts of every glossy this side of the Mississippi with a staggering series of wins. New York won Magazine of the Year gold medals for design and photography and nabbed five other medals during the evening. Former design director Luke Hayman‘s probably kicking himself for leaving the magazine for silly old Pentagram, don’t you think? No, he probably isn’t.
We’d never have believed it ourselves if we hadn’t seen it liveblogged by our Fish-y brothers, but the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists beat out Metropolis, I.D. and Print in the General Excellence under 100,000 circulation category tonight at the Ellies. Nuclear war, more important than design? You’ve got to be kidding us. Still editor Mark Strauss seems like a pretty decent guy.
But design did have a big moment. In a fitting pairing, Milton Glaser presented the Design Award to the very worthy New York Magazine with this quote: “New York’s design is not about the grid, the typography, or the photography as much as it is an essential component of its editorial voice. Every aspect of the design, every element on every page, brings an integral part of the magazine’s content forward for its readers. Week after week it reflects the energies and experiences of New York in all its complexity and diversity.”
When accepting the award, NY Mag editor Adam Moss called Luke Hayman a traitor, for reasons we can’t possibly imagine.
