Reader’s Digest

Reader’s Digest was a monthly, general-interest magazine with a circulation of almost six million, published in the small, digest-sized format. My job as creative director included overseeing the design of the print magazine, as well as books, special issues, the website, and apps.  The staff included art directors Dean Abatemarco and Marti Golon, photo editor Bill Black, and designers Linda Bell Hall and Jennifer Klein. We completely redesigned the magazine and cover format, integrating new sections and departments as part of an overall rebranding strategy. Concurrent with the magazine redesign was a redesign of the Reader’s Digest website, the launch of iPad and Kindle Fire apps, and the launch of a major book initiative for The Digest Diet.
