Marie Claire Names Design Director

From London to New York.

Marie Claire has named Clare Ferguson design director. Ferguson comes to the magazine from London-based Tatler, where she served as art director. Prior to her time at Tatler, Ferguson art directed the first edition of Net-a-Porter’s magazine The Edit.

“Clare’s work has always mixed beauty and power with a keen eye,” said Marie Claire’s editor-in-chief, Anne Fulenwider, in an announcement. “Her fresh, European sensibility makes her just the right person to expand and build on Marie Claire’s strong visual identity.”

In related news, Marie Claire has promoted Wanyi Jiang from deputy art director to art director. Jiang has been with the magazine since 2013.
