BlackBook, the self-described “insider’s club of magazines,” has a new creative director. Replacing Bryan Erickson, who Fashion Week Daily reports “was unceremoniously sacked on November 3 by owner Ari Horowitz,” is Jason Daniels, who BlackBook describes as having “established and initiated the visual language and early designs for Tina Brown‘s Talk magazine.” Daniels also previously worked at the Arnell group and Laird and Partners, and with brands such as Issey Miyake, the Standard Hotel, and most recently, Limited Brands.
“Jason brings with him the energy, eye, and the wit readers have come to expect from BlackBook, while also giving his critical global vision to BlackBook‘s exciting new platforms, including BBook.com and our new mobile applications, including iPhone,” said BlackBook editor-in-chief Ray Rogers in a statement issued on Friday. “The brand is rapidly diversifying and fast becoming a global, multi-media entity. Jason lends an experienced, critical eye to all of the components beyond just the magazine.”
