The New York Times Magazine’s design director Arem Duplessis has announced he will be leaving the company to take a spot at Apple. In February Duplessis will begin his new position as creative director at Apple, where he will be assisting the internal marketing team.
MediaBistro asked Duplessis a few questions:
Why is it the right time for you to make this move?
I’ve been at The New York Times Magazine for almost ten years. I have worked with some of the smartest people on the planet and it’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I feel very fortunate to have been able to experience such a great gig. With that said, it’s time for a new chapter and a new challenge.
What will you miss most about working at The New York Times Magazine?
Without question the people. I have made so many great friends over the years and I will miss them dearly.
Bonus question: What’s the best gift you received this holiday season?
Hearing my son proclaim “THIS IS THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!” No way to beat that, right?
The New York Times Magazine is a supplement to the newspaper and is issued every Sunday. Before joining The New York Times Magazine in 2004, Duplessis spent time as design director at Spin and GQ magazines.
