Arem Duplessis Leaving New York Times Magazine for Apple

Your Sunday is about to get a lot less visually stimulating: Arem Duplessis has decided to leave his post as design director of The New York Times Magazine [muffled sobbing]. Come February, he’ll begin his new position as a creative director at Apple, where he’ll lend his creative genius to the internal marketing team. Word of the move follows the recent announcement that Facebook has tapped Apple advertising veteran Scott Trattner to serve as its executive creative director. We asked Duplessis a few questions as he prepares to relocate to the promised land of Cupertino.

Why is it the right time for you to make this move?
I’ve been at The New York Times Magazine for almost ten years. I have worked with some of the smartest people on the planet and it’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I feel very fortunate to have been able to experience such a great gig. With that said, it’s time for a new chapter and a new challenge.

What will you miss most about working at The New York Times Magazine?
Without question the people. I have made so many great friends over the years and I will miss them dearly.

Bonus question: What’s the best gift you received this holiday season?
Hearing my son proclaim “THIS IS THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!” No way to beat that, right?

Food Fight: WIRED Also Covered in Corn

NYT wired corn.jpgThe New York Times Magazine isn’t the only publication to have food on the brain—and the cover. Like Sunday’s NYT Magazine, fronted by German photographer Martin Klimas‘ smashing pumpkin (and apple and ear of corn), WIRED‘s November issue will tackle the “the future of food” and also opts for a corny cover. It’s a coincidence that “show[s] that it is clearly an issue becoming top of mind,” Wired Media publicist Christina Valencia tells us. The Society of Publication Designers’ new blog was the first to remark on the a-maizing similarity, noting on Friday that New York Times Magazine art director Arem Duplessis and WIRED creative director Scott Dadich were spotted “carousing together” at a recent SPD West event.
