Fast News for September 6, 2011

Fast News for September 6, 2011 SPD MEDIA MIX is our regular list of publication design, digital, and media news and updates. Please send your links and news items to SPD at mail@spd.org and we'll add them to the Mix.

>> Style Files in October: Style.com will unveil its long-awaited print edition in late October, shortly after the spring runway shows. Publisher Fairchild considers it a natural extension of the brand. Former Nylon and Teen Vogue CD--and most recently VP/Advertising at Barney's--Lina Kutsovskaya will serve as creative director.

>> Maxim's iPad Fail: Maxim HD, an iPad-specific version of the print 'lad' magazine, has announced its end, less than a year after launch. Plans exist for a replacement (on the Mag+ platform) to launch "soon," but since it was discontinued with the magazine's June issue--and without a replacement--means it could not have been a bestseller.

>> Fascist Filching: On her design blog Brain Pickings, curator Maria Popova busts a Polish magazine's blatant thievery of Israeli illustrator Noma Bar's wonderful Adolph Hitler portrait.
