About: (Est. 2004) “T: The New York Times Style Magazine is a perfect-bound magazine dedicated to fashion, living, beauty, holiday, travel and design coverage. The magazine was launched in August 2004. It is published 15 times a year and distributed within the Sunday edition of The New York Times newspaper. Since December 2007, an international edition has been distributed with the weekend edition of the International Herald Tribune. Stefano Tonchi was editor until 2010; his replacement was Sally Singer. Singer left in 2012 and was replaced by Deborah Needleman. T is not a supplement of The New York Times Magazine, but a distinct publication with its own staff.” (Source: Wikipedia)

Ed.’s Notes: It’s sad to see the iconic, blackletter “T” go, but perhaps this will give the magazine its own wings to be considered separate of The New York Times. Before/After of the cover below (or after the jump).

Established in 1913, Harvard University Press is a “leading publisher of convergent works in the sciences, humanities, and social sciences” and, as its name implies, it is the imprint of Harvard University. Facing challenges with making the transition to apps, digital reading devices, and web browsers using its previous identity — an honorable and traditional shield — Harvard University Press has introduced a new logo designed by New York, NY-based Chermayeff & Geismar.
