New Artistic Director at Granta

Granta magazine is delighted to announce the appointment of Michael Salu as Artistic Director.

For the past five years Michael has been Senior Designer at CCVP, Random House UK. Working on a range of titles across the lists, he designed several jackets for Vintage Classics - a prestigious list that included Italo Calvino, Raymond Carver, Bruce Chatwin and many others.

Salu has also worked with the musician Tricky, designing the merchandise for his most recent tour and the new deluxe edition of his first album Maxinquaye. As a freelance brand consultant, he was responsible for creating and designing the new brand identity for Curzon Cinemas, recently launched across all the group’s activities.

Editor John Freeman says – ‘Michael is a profoundly intelligent and stylish designer, and we’re all thrilled that he is on board to help us make the magazine as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside.’

Michael Salu said – ‘Granta has a history of iconic cover designs and photo essays. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop a distinctive aesthetic presence for the magazine in all its activities. I am excited about working with that intelligent visual heritage to complement the magazine’s reputation for championing new writing.’

    I do enjoy the way you have presented this matter plus it does offer us a lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, because of everything that I have seen, I basically wish as other opinions pile on that individuals stay on issue and not embark on a soap box associated with some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this excellent piece and while I can not agree with the idea in totality, I regard your standpoint. http://datinglove.org

    Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
