John Walters had an eye for Eye…

April 11, 2008

The news from across the pond that the editor of Eye magazine is now the owner of the magazine. Haymarket Media Group announced their decision to release ownership of Eye magazine to its editor since 1999 John Walters. John and two of the magazine founders Simon Esterson (Eye’s art director) and Hannah Tyson (business director at Esterson Associates) have formed Eye Magazine Ltd. a new company that will continue to publish one of the best graphic design magazines any side of the Atlantic …
What caught my attention is that those three people embodied for me the true passion found in individuals and the way they interact with the products they create. It is what I call the passion of publishing formula: you dream it, you launch it, you love it and you buy it.
Haymarket Media Group may have lost Eye, but the aforementioned trio together with thousands of graphic designers around the world gained a highly prized magazine that will continue to land on their door steps once every quarter.
Best of luck and keep up the great work. I will continue to keep an eye on Eye!
