Details magazine, version #2, 1990-2000

Details magazine, version #2, 1990-2000 This fall marks the 20th anniversary of the relaunch of Details by Conde Nast, under the editorship of James Truman, along with creative director Derek Ungless, photo director Greg Pond, and fashion director Bill Mullen. The first issues under Ungless's direction were truly groundbreaking, filled with bright, tabloid-inspired design, provocative photography, and cool fashion. Subsequent design directors included B.W. Honeycutt, Markus Kiersztan, and many others, but the constants were Pond and Mullen, who combined to create some of the most memorable magazine imagery of the 90s. Here are some of our favorite Details covers from 1990-1998. Unless noted, all credits include Greg Pond, photo director, and Bill Mullen, fashion director.
