Alex Gonzalez Named New Elle Creative Director

By

Joe Zee's departure for Yahoo left big shoes to fill, and today, it was announced that Alex Gonzalez, the creative director of Marie Claire and Town & Country, will replace him as creative director at Elle. Gonzalez will also continue to fulfill his duties at Town & Country, reporting to EIC Jay Fielden. Said Hearst Magazine president David Carey in a statement, “Alex has the skill and imagination to communicate the unique essence of a brand through design. His work on Marie Claire strengthened this important franchise, and I look forward to him now enriching ELLE’s global spirit and strong fashion point-of-view, while continuing to oversee the look and feel of Town & Country.” Sounds like he has his work cut out for him.
