Jody Quon has resigned as creative director and editor Stefano Tonchi’s number two at W after three issues. She was one of the leading voices in the new design of the magazine for its September relaunch. A spokesperson for the magazine told The Daily that Ms. Quon’s position will not be filled.
Mr. Tonchi hired Ms. Quon from New York, where she was the photo director for 6 years, during which time the Society of Publication Designers named it magazine of the year twice (2006, 2007). Ms. Quon, formerly a deputy photo editor at The New York Times Magazine, shouldn’t have trouble finding a new spot.
