ESPN has hired John Korpics as vice president/creative director for print & digital media.
Korpics arrives at ESPN from Fortune magazine, where he was the creative director. He will work with ESPN The Magazine editor-in-chief Chad Millman to oversee the publication’s design group and spearhead integration of the design and photo teams across all platforms. Korpics starts his new position on Sept. 6.
“John is one of the most talented and accomplished creative directors in the content industry,” said Rob King, ESPN senior vice president for digital and print media. “His experience across a wide range of subjects, as well as his track record in redesign and branding, will be a tremendous creative resource that will enable us to best deliver to our audience across all our platforms.”
“I’m thrilled to have John joining our team,” said Millman. “There’s been a great creative energy here since we moved our operations to Bristol last month, and John’s arrival will give us another great jolt that will enable ‘The Mag’ to continue providing great content in exciting, interesting ways for our readers.”
