SWISS MAG: Christina Ferrari, most recently interim editorial director of Wallpaper, and before that, managing editor of Teen People, is launching a new English-language magazine in Switzerland with her husband, Henry Muller, former editorial director of Time Inc. They have joined forces with two Swiss journalists, Pierre Grosjean and Gabriel Sigrist, and American entrepreneur Andy Sundberg, former founder of Internet access provider Iprolink. Scheduled to launch early next year by Violet Media S.A., the as-yet-unnamed magazine will be the only English-language magazine that covers all of Switzerland, including news, opinions and lifestyle information. It will have offices in Geneva and Zurich.
