Head off the challenge to Rolling Stone from new insurgent titles on the newsstand.
After taking the full time role in NYC as Art Director, I developed a more robust approach to covers and a new interior layout style without compromising the heritage and integrity of one of the world’s most famous media brands. Working with photographers such as Albert Watson, Martin Schoeller, Ruven Afanador, Matthew Rolston and others, Rolling Stone maintained access to the world’s biggest stars. Cover shoots were commissioned of Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Angelina Jolie, The Strokes and many more. Buzzfeed’s 15 favourite Rolling Stone covers during my tenure are here.
Sales and ad revenue increased. Twenty three merit awards and a silver medal for illustration were also won at the prestigious SPD Awards.
