Bob Mercer back in the business at Vancouver lifestyle book

Nice to see Bob Mercer back in the game. The magazine publishing instructor at Simon Fraser University (a role he will continue to play) has become editor and art director of VLM (Vancouver Lifestyle Magazine), a glossy, upscale mag, according to a story in mastheadonline (sub req'd).

Mercer was once editor of Vancouver magazine and Calgary magazine, back when they were owned by Comac Communications Limited. And before that, was editor (twice), art director and reporter for Georgia Straight, the alternative weekly. He also worked for a time as design editor and copy editor at the Province, the CanWest tabloid in Vancouver. He's one of the rare editor-art director combinations in the Canadian business, and his magazines tend to look as good as they read, which is always nice.

Didn't D.B. Scott work at Comac Communications Ltd. too? Wasn't that fun? Hi Deeb.
