Redesigning Vanity Fair: Chris Dixon & Christian Schwartz at the New York TDC
| 11 NOVEMBER 2014
From the TDC website: Chris Dixon arrived at Vanity Fair in 2011 from New York magazine. He began reworking the typography, page design, illustrations, infographics, and photography to evolve the iconic publication section by section. In 2012, he started his collaboration with Christian Schwartz and Paul Barnes of Commercial Type on a six-month process to redesign Vanity Fair’s logo and create a new custom display typeface, a fresh interpretation of Didot that debuted in 2013.
