Creative director Billy Sorrentino today announced that David Moretti will join WIRED (US) in January as deputy creative director. In this role Mr. Moretti will be integral in developing the design language, identity, and vision of WIRED.
"David is one of the finest creatives working today," said Mr. Sorrentino. "He knows WIRED's DNA intimately and I'm delighted to add him to my incredible San Francisco team.
Mr. Moretti was creative director of WIRED Italia from its launch in 2009. His ties to WIRED US run deep: before taking the Italia job he embedded for several weeks in San Francisco. He and his Milan-based team went on to win numerous design awards, including prizes from the Society of Publication Designers, the Type Directors Club, and the Art Directors Club. Prior to joining WIRED, Mr. Moretti held senior design roles at several top Italian magazines, including creative director of Rolling Stone Italia.
David will be speaking TOMORROW at the Helen Mills Theatre, 139 West 26th Street at 6:30 PM. Buy your tickets NOW, they are selling fast, see a historic moment as he showcases his work for WIRED Italia and speaks about his new role at WIRED US!
