People move about in magazines all the time, but some moves are more dramatic than others; certainly the word that design director Chris Dixon has been poached* from New York magazine by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter qualifies as big news.
He has the same title at VF, replacing David Harris who becomes the magazine's first design editor-at-large.
A memo to staff from Carter says Dixon "made [New York] one of the most well-designed magazines in the industry."
Dixon has been at New York since 2004 and previously worked at The Financial Times, The New York Times Magazine, Ogilvy & Mather, and Adbusters.
