  • New year, new job! The Art Directors Club has promoted Olga Grisaitis to director, which makes her a meta-director! She’s a 16-year veteran of the international creative collective, having in recent years ascended from director of operations to acting director. Now she’ll work directly with the ADC board to interpret the club’s mission to “connect, provoke, elevate” the creative community. We suspect she’d want us to remind you that the final deadlines for the annual ADC awards competition are rapidly approaching.
  • James Gaddy, a star editor over at Print (whose thorax you’ll recall from his cover turn on the March/April 2007 issue), has decamped for Interview, where he’ll serve as acting managing editor.

  • In other managerial/editorial news, delightful D-Crit student Molly Heintz has begun her new position as managing editor of The Architect’s Newspaper. She replaces Jeff Byles, who departed the paper last month to focus on his own writing projects.
