FishbowlNY sister site MediaJobsDaily made mention of Danko Steiner’s exit as design director from Vogue this morning.
Steiner had been working at the Condé Nast publication for four years, but his decision to leave must have been known for quite some time. How else would you explain the quick turnaround that’s being reported, with creative director of ad agency AR New York, Raúl Martinez, already being tapped for Steiner’s position?
Of course, this will not be Martinez’s first stint at the fashion bible. He left Anna Wintour’s side in 1996 to work for AR. His homecoming is nothing short of getting the gang back together, Don Draper-style. As Martinez told <a href="http://www.mediabistro.com/Womens-Wear-Daily-profile.html"Women’s Wear Daily:
“I will still have the agency and undoubtedly, the two can coexist. I can’t begin to explain how excited I am to be joining forces with Anna once again.”
