Q+A | Deb Bishop and Geraldine Hessler

Deb Bishop and Geraldine Hessler are two of the most successful and talented magazine designers working today. Deb worked at Martha Stewart Living for more than 10 years, winning accolades for her hugely popular and influential work for Martha Stewart Baby, Martha Stewart Kids, and Blueprint, nabbing an unprecedented three SPD Magazine of the Year Gold Medals. Geraldine Hessler began her career at Rolling Stone before stepping out on her own at Entertainment Weekly, first as Art Director and then as Design Director in 1999. Her work has been included in ASME's list of the 40 Most Influential Magazine covers of the Last 40 Years. Both Deb and Geraldine have full award shelves (from SPD, the AIGA, TDC, and ADC and now find themselves both at new gigs this summer: Deb as Creative Director for More and Geraldine as Creative Director of Glamour. I recently invited them to chat about their new roles and the fresh challenges they face.--Scott Dadich


C U L8R, Ciudad. Luv, Tom.

Tom O'Quinn, longtime CD at LA's Tu Ciudad, is the new Deputy Art Director at Bon Appétit with DD Matt Lenning.

Changes at Complex and OK! Ok? Ok.

Sean Bumgarner has left his position as DD at Complex to take on the Creative Director job at OK! Rely on him for all your Celebrity Baby Insider knowledge to win the office pool.

Stepping up to fill the DD spot at Complex is Tim Leong, previously the Deputy AD with the magazine, SPD judging über-hero, and Editor-in-Chief at Comic Foundry. God, Tim, you're such a slacker.

O, My Goodness.

Carla Frank, the founding Design Director at O, The Oprah Magazine (one of the most successful magazine launches ever -- did you know?) has left the magazine in search of exciting new projects, a spankin' new website, and maybe, finally, a little time to breathe. Sounds fantastic, lady!

Taking the reigns at O for a time will be Bob Newman, who had been consulting at Cottage Living. (Also the proprietor of a sparkly website... hmm.)
