The New Yorker has tapped Nicholas Blechman as creative director.

Blechman, who starts his new job on July 6, comes from The New York Times Book Review, where he served as its art director since 2006. He also held the role of art editor for The New York Times’ Upshot for about a year, and has provided art direction for a host of publications over the years, including GQ and Wired.

He will fill the spot left open by Wyatt Mitchell, who has departed the Condé Nast-owned magazine for Apple.

“For over two decades, Nicholas has been a smart and original contributor to the international design and illustration world,” editor in chief of The New Yorker David Remnick offered.
