Vogue looked internally to find a replacement for longtime design director Charles Churchward, who last week announced his retirement from the magazine. The new design director is none other than Danko Steiner, who has been Vogue‘s art director since late 2005, when he was plucked from Harper’s Bazaar. “Working with [Churchward], when you’re around people like that you don’t realize what you learn along the way,” Steiner told WWD. “I really admire his dedication to the magazine and the overall vision that he tried to maintain.” Educated in Croatia at the University of Zagreb’s School of Architecture, Steiner previously worked as a designer for Visionaire, that bubbling cauldron of creativity with alums that also include Stephen Gan (creative director of Harper’s Bazaar) and, via offshoot V Magazine, Christopher Bollen (newly installed editor of Interview).
