The mag's first creative director.

Time Inc. has named Tim Leong creative director of Entertainment Weekly. He’s the first staffer to occupy that role in EW’s 26-year history.

Leong joined EW in 2014 as design director. He previously worked at Fortune, Wired and Complex.

EW editor in chief Henry Goldblatt said Leong deserved the promotion, citing his “meteoric rise through the industry.”
