Darhil Crooks has been appointed as the new creative director of Ebony magazine. Editor-in-chief Amy DuBois made the move official yesterday and is eager to add Crooks’s experience to the magazine:
Darhil’s singular creative vision for the Ebony brand and his tremendous background working at best-in-class magazines will be of great value as we usher in a new era at the publication.
Crooks’s move to Ebony comes after spending over five years as art director at Esquire and previous career stops at Men’s Journal and Complex magazine. At Ebony, Crooks will manage the art department and make key decisions on page design and layout. He will begin work on Jan. 3.
