New York's New Section Design Explained
Backstage at Adam Moss' magazine.
Print has a short behind-the-scenes look at New Yorkâ€™s recent section reshuffling:
Thereâ€™s been some sadness around this office that New York decided to get rid of their High Priority feature, a half-page graphic that opened their listings section each week. Created by a different designer every issue, High Priority showed off the talents of designers new and established, with the only restriction being that the design be done in red, black, and white.* Chris Dixon, the magazineâ€™s design director, jokes that they â€śran out of typographersâ€ť after three years, but adds on a more serious note that High Priority had a tendency to be â€śa little removed [from what the magazine was actually recommending] for the readerâ€™s good.â€ť
Dixon and his team also bumped the crossword puzzle a few pages and introduced a new back page infographic, Artifact, which the magazine's editors describes as â€śpure observation, a moment grabbed and preserved.â€ť Dixon adds that they â€śhad been looking for the perfect end note to the magazine for a year or so,â€ť and that â€śthis seemed to be the best way to finish off the experience of the issue.â€ť
