If you were a font, what font would you be?
I’m definitely a serif font. In fact, I’m Mrs. Eaves, our logo font. I used to be Trajan. I’d like to be a sans serif font — Gotham Light, maybe — but I’m not part of that generation.
When you’re not designing beautiful magazines, what are you doing?
Looking at and reading magazines. I love them. I was born into a magazine family. My dad was a media buyer for a big agency in NYC, so we had every magazine in our house. I started cutting them up to make collages when I was 5 years old. If I’m not doing something magazine-related, I’m probably planting water lilies, pruning the tomato plants and avoiding rattlesnakes.
September 2008. I love the image. I wish it had our new logo on it.
If you were to put five things in a time capsule that wouldn’t be opened until 2060, what would they be?
– Our November 2010 “Then & Now” issue.
– VHS tapes of my children when they were very young. They’d be in their 70s watching them.
– A can of Diet Coke — bet it would still be good.
– My purse. It’s a time capsule now.
– My boyfriend’s babganoush. I bet it would last, too.
– My beautiful new 17-inch MacBook Pro.
If you were a movie character, who would you be?
I’ve been told I’m Samantha from Sex in the City I, but, sadly, I think I’m more Frances McDormand from Almost Famous.
