Redesigned Boston Hits Newsstands

With the new year comes a new look for Boston magazine, the venerable guide to the Hub. Our sister blog FishbowlNY reports that the magazine’s January issue (with a restaurant focus that is right in sync with the current “Where to Eat 2009” issue of New York) boasts a new look overseen by Patrick Mitchell, the magazine’s creative director. Mitchell first dazzled the magazine world while at Fast Company and has since redesigned, produced, or launched magazines including Nylon, Tokion, and the late 02138 (right across the Charles). Among the features of the revamped Boston is what FishbowlNY describes as “a front-of-book section that sounds a lot like New York‘s Intelligencer.”
