Newly-installed Architectural Digest Editor-in-Chief Amy Astley is bringing more fashion people into the interior design magazine's fold, first poaching former Teen Vogue colleague Jane Keltner de Valle from Glamour as style director. According to WWD, Astley has also recruited Art Director Natalie Do from V magazine and Creative Director David Sebbah, who hold the same title at Spring Studios — and she's put designer Marc Jacobs on the cover.
On Friday, a rep for Architectural Digest confirmed that the magazine has brought on Interview Editor-in-Chief Keith Pollock to head the website as senior executive director, digital. Pollock held Interview's EIC role since the magazine's April 2014 issue, after previously serving as founding co-editor of luxury lifestyle print and digital magazine DuJour and editorial director of Elle.com. Before that, he was the executive director of Brant Publications, where he oversaw Interview's digital operations.
In an interview with The Cut shortly after his return to Interview, Pollock described himself as a "digital guy" and said he was eager to surprise audiences with cover choices (see Kylie Jenner's December/January issue cover, for example). "I get really inspired by digital strategy," he told The Cut. "Not necessarily the content creation part of it, but the challenge of creating a website and user experience."
