Dwell Magazine Continues The Redesign Trend

1

Redesigns seem to be the 'it' thing in the shelter media world for 2012. First, Veranda got a subtle but chic makeover. Then, Apartment Therapy and CasaSugar jumped on the bandwagon. And now, Dwell, the go-to mag for all things modern in home design and architecture, is continuing the trend.

Subtle yet immediately noticeable is the slender new font on the cover, which is a nice change from the formerly bolder text and gives the magazine a much airier feel. There are more changes inside the mag, according to Dwell's new Editor-in-Chief, Amanda Dameron, who was moved to New York to give the title a less west coast-based image. And, that's not the only recent staff change. Former Art Director Alejandro Chavetta has been promoted to Creative Director and two new hires were brought on as Photo Editor and Senior Editor.

We're not sure if it is the new year or the recent sales increases, but something is definitely in the publishing water for the shelter category. What do you guys think about all these recent changes? Good? Bad? Let us know in the comments!
