How to F***Up a Perfectly Fine Magazine and Look Good While Trying: 13 Esquire Contents Pages

How to F***Up a Perfectly Fine Magazine and Look Good While Trying: 13 Esquire Contents Pages Wednesday, November 20 at the Helen Mills Theater in NYC, the Society of Publication Designers is presenting its latest SpeakEasy, How to F*** Up a Perfectly Fine Magazine and Look Good While Trying: An Evening with David Curcurito, Design Director of Esquire & Friends. 

In addition to Curcurito, Esquire art director Stravinski Pierre and photo director Mike Norseng will also join in to, as Curcurito says "give insight into what it truly takes to give Esquire its unique look and feel."

Leading up to next Wednesday's speakeasy, SPD is presenting a series of Esquire page designs and images selected from Curcurito & Company's very impressive body of work. One of the signatures of the current Esquire design has been the way that the art and edit team have reworked and reimagined traditional front-of-book pages, including the TOC and letters to the editor. Here we've got a baker's dozen of our favorite (and very imaginative) Esquire contents pages from the past eight years.
