It’s been interesting reading your comments on this post talking about the future of AD. From what I hear there’s no interviewing happening, but I think, as Wendy Goodman from NY Magazine said to me, that no magazine can survive unless it is relevant in today’s society. I think that whoever takes over the realms at AD will have a tough time getting rid of all that formaldehyde that’s been stuffed into the magazine and trying to bring it back to life. It requires an editor that has an understanding of relevance, society and contemporary design. I think it has to be somebody who is connected to designers and connected to what is happening in contemporary design, not someone hidden away from all the design action. And most importantly the job requires somebody who understands magazines, how to put it together and keep the flow going.
I’ll be watching this space with you and will let you know if I hear anything
