STEINER EXITS: Danko Steiner, design director at Vogue, is leaving the magazine after four years to pursue photography. Following Steiner’s resignation, editor in chief Anna Wintour tapped Raúl Martinez, founder and chief creative officer of AR New York, a full-scale branding and advertising agency, as creative consultant to Vogue. Martinez will work with the magazine and’s art, design and photography and offer input on Vogue’s overall image and brand.

Martinez began his career at Vogue before departing for AR in 1996. Most recently, AR has worked on ad campaigns for Banana Republic, Jimmy Choo and Brioni. “We have always kept in touch,” Martinez told WWD. “I will still have the agency and undoubtedly, the two can coexist. I can’t begin to explain how excited I am to be joining forces with Anna once again.” Martinez will join Vogue the week of Dec. 1 and his work will begin to appear in the pages of the magazine in the spring.
