Jessica Rose, the Toronto Life art director who redesigned the magazine during her three years there, is moving on. According to a posting on Mastheadonline, she is leaving the magazine in June and moving to England. Rose was a surprise pick when she joined TL, mostly because she was an outsider with little magazine design experience. She said her makeover of the magazine which was launched last July was "an homage to classic magazine design"
Rose's departure is not apparently linked with the announcement that publisher Sharon McAuley is leaving for what is described as a one-year sabbatical.
