The New Yorker gets a refresh


The annoying autoplay function means I’ve had to take down this video – link to it here.

Yikes! It's the magazine they said couldn’t be redesigned, but the rumours were true. Here’s New Yorker creative director Wyatt Mitchell talking readers through the first parts of his 13-strong (!?!) team’s revamp of the title, to be revealed in this week’s edition.

From the video, it looks like they’ve gone about the project with the utmost respect for the history of the magazine. First up is a redesign of the listings section, with a redrawn version of their famous Irvin typeface (as featured throughout the vid) and additional illustration and photography.

So far, so good, but apparently these changes are just the beginning. Watch this space.
