Meredith Corporation’s Food & Wine announced that its June issue marks the debut of a fresh editorial redesign. The issue is already on newsstands and is accessible at FoodandWine.com.
Since joining Food & Wine in June 2017, editor-in-chief Hunter Lewis has led the brand’s creative team to inspire and empower their audience to eat, drink, entertain, and travel better—every day and everywhere. The purpose of the magazine’s design evolution is to deliver a fresher look, a more joyful experience, and more service on every page.
“We’re excited to give coverage of food, recipes, and drink even more real estate in every issue,” said Lewis. “With any creative endeavor, the look will continue to evolve, as will our coverage of the chefs, winemakers, and tastemakers who are shaping our dynamic food and drink culture.”
Food & Wine’s evolving design is a celebration of print and what it does best: driving discovery and engagement. Updates featured in the June issue include the following:
Meredith Corporation recently appointed Thomas J. Bair as publisher of Food & Wine. A magazine media veteran, Bair has worked with other companies, including Tiger 21, WME-IMG, The Golf Digest Company, and Men’s Health.
“Food & Wine is experiencing incredible momentum, including this fresh redesign, the brand’s upcoming 40th anniversary, and our Best New Chefs and Food & Wine Classic in Aspen signature franchises. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this team,” says Bair. “We have so many opportunities with our talented editors, best-in-class events, and the support of Meredith, a company that understands how to deliver quality and value to readers and the marketplace.”
Food & Wine’s social and digital channels will align with this print redesign. FoodandWine.com was recently awarded a James Beard Media Award for the Personal Essay, “Dear Women. Own Your Stories” by Lisa Donovan. In addition, the brand experienced 44 per cent year-over-year growth in ComScore (March 2017 to March 2018).
