Fortune Taps Tim Leong as Design Director

The bubbling vat of creative talent at Wired magazine has yielded a new design director for Fortune. Tim Leong will join the Time Inc. title on August 5. He was previously director of digital design at Wired and is also a newly published author: Leong’s Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe is out today from Chronicle Books.

“He is a multi-talented guy who worked on all aspects of the Wired brand with an emphasis his last two years on the digital extensions, including all tablet editions, coordinating motion and programming, e-books, e-features, as well as working directly with the website,” wrote Fortune creative director (and fellow Wired veteran) Brandon Cavulla in an e-mail sent today. “Tim was also a part of Wired‘s conferences, working with me on motion graphics/film and overall identity.” He succeeds Emily Kehe, who left Fortune in December and is now creative director at People StyleWatch.
