I’m D.W. Pine, Creative Director at TIME and I design the magazine cover each week. Ask me anything!
As the Creative Director of TIME, I’m responsible for the design of one of the world's most iconic brands and challenged each week with presenting some of the biggest news stories. I’ve designed more than 500 TIME covers in my 20-plus years at the magazine, from politics to technology, from health to world news to President Trump. The cover on Christine Blasey Ford was recently named the 2019 Best Cover of the Year by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME). I also currently art direct the weekly animated cover for TIME's 60 million social audience.
I’ll be taking over TIME's Reddit account Friday, March 22 from 1-2pm ET so you can ask me anything about the cover of TIME.
Update: Thank you for your questions! Signing off now. Besides the still images we also have animated versions of our covers each week. You can check them out at TIME's Instagram.
