Boston magazine

Boston magazine The Boston Globe newspaper has been a fertile breeding ground for magazine designers. Richard Baker, Gail Anderson, Lynn Staley, and current Fortune design director Emily Kehe, among others, all cut their teeth in the Globe's newsroom. The latest Globe veteran to move to magazine design is Chin Wang, who has been the design director at Boston magazine since early 2010. Wang spent eight years at the Globe, designing everything from the weekend Metro section to the Sunday magazine. Since moving to Boston, Wang has given the magazine a sparkling new look, filled with powerful photos and illustrations and lots of graphic surprise and delight. Wang describes the magazine's look as "clean and elegant, inventive but not precious, clever but not too insider-y," and says about her staff that "what we don't have in budget, we make up for with enthusiasm and resourcefulness!"

After the jump, we've got a bright selection of some of the best recent work from Boston magazine, and Chin Wang and her team.
