GEOFF WARING

After studying Graphic Design at Manchester University in the 80’s I moved back to London and began a career as a magazine designer 

and art director. I was the second art director at UK Elle after Clive Crook, and then went on to be Design Director at Vogue under Robin Derrick in the 90’s. 

After 4 years Condé Nast invited me to Sydney to art direct Vogue Australia. 16 issues later I returned to London to Launch Red magazine for EMAP. (The logo is in my handwriting). A brief stint on a web start up led me back to Condé Nast to launch UK Glamour in 2001, arguably the most successful magazine launch in the last 30 years. We created the ‘Glamour’ handbag size look that would be rolled out across the world in over 12 countries. In 2005 I changed desks at Condé Nast and launched Easy Living where I was Creative Director for 4 years before going freelance.

Over the years I have donefreelance art directing for Boden, M&S, Monsoon, Tatler, Cath Kidston and Clarks among others.

More recently I was brought in to revamp the look of Good Housekeeping for Hearst. It is now the biggest selling women’s glossy in the country, ironically outselling Glamour for the first time. And winner of PPA magazine of the year 2015.
