American Movie Classics Magazine


American Movie Classics Magazine

Reflecting the classic Hollywood focus of the cable network, the magazine featured many full bleed photos and examples of classic movie art. It was also one of the first to use desktop publishing programs for its design and one of the first to go direct to 6-color film using desktop software.

As the magazine’s Art and design director from 1989 through 1996, I steered the magazine through two award-winning redesigns and the network’s entry into the online environment.

One of my favorite aspects of art directing this magazine was being able to research and oversee the high-end digital restoration of many rare classic Hollywood photographs.

Moving along

I’m teaching at MassArt and in the Somerville Schools this semester.
The Web Club pages have a lot of neat links: Somerville 21 Web Club

I’ll be building MassArtEd.org this semester. We’ll role a lot of the AEContent stuff into it and create a student/faculty/department portal.

I also set up a MySpace page for myself this year. Lots of Boston Rockers there. Just another place to waste my precious time!

new year, new blog

A new place for occasional postings, musings, work in progress and “caught in the web,” my ongoing blog of the best of the web (I don’t think I’ll import the old messages, visit my (http://del.icio.us/elr) Del.icio.us account for more that 1,000 tastily organized links…).

This year, I am using WordPress. I have set up WP blogs for others, and will be shifting from MT for my own and for the rest of my course blogs during the next year.
