Apple Hires New York Times Magazine Design Director Arem Duplessis For Creative Director Role
Design Director of the New York Times Magazine, Arem Duplessis, will be joining Apple in February as a creative director, where he will reportedly be reporting to an internal marketing team. In an interview with Mediabistro, Duplessis reveals the reasoning for leaving the NYT Magazine:
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?
Duplessis has worked as a design director at the New York Times Magazine, a supplement to the NYT newspaper, for over 10 years. Before the magazine, he worked at GQ and Spin magazine. Nevertheless, It will be interesting to see how his new role at Apple plays out. You can check out a couple of his cover works below while he was at the NYT Magazine.
