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.
