American Craft To Be Renovated By Former Dwell Staffers


Well, if this isn’t one of those what-goes-around publishing world stories that creates a warming sensation in the soul. Former Dwell senior editor Andrew Wagner, who we crafted one of our best headlines of all time about after his departure for American Craft magazine, is now teaming up with Dwell’s founding creative director Jeanette Abbink to significantly redesign the mag, including a change in editorial voice:

AMERICAN CRAFT, the 66-year-old international bi-monthly publication, will relaunch in October 2007, the first significant redesign of the magazine in more than 15 years. Former executive editor and founding managing editor of DWELL magazine, Andrew Wagner, recently relocated from San Francisco to New York to steer the magazine’s new direction with former founding DWELL creative director, Jeanette Abbink. Together, Wagner and Abbink helped DWELL win the coveted General Excellence Award from the American Society of Magazine Editors in 2005.
