via SPD.org

Tim Leong was the design director at Complex magazine for the past four years. He recently left the magazine to move to San Francisco and be the art director at Wired.

At Complex he developed a look that was fun, energetic, sexy, and diverse, reflecting the magazine’s hip, street attitude. Leong used a rapid-fire mix of cool photography, photo illustration, cartoony illustration, and high-powered graphic typography to create a very original and totally rocking design. Go here for a short retrospective collection of Leong’s Complex covers and feature spreads.
