It’s one thing to write about extraordinary artists outside the walls of our Portland Monthly headquarters building. But it’s even closer to home to talk about the artists within our own magazine. Here at Portland Monthly, we’ve just learned that Folio: Magazine has named our Design Director, Meaghan Maurice, as one of “30 Under 30”
national magazine executives who are changing the face of publishing.
As the announcement to Meaghan says, “Congratulations! You’ve been selected by the editors at Folio: as one of the 2017 Folio: 30 Under 30 Honorees. The Folio: 30 Under 30 is a collection of the brightest magazine media individuals under the age of 30 who are executing on some of our industry’s most innovative ideas. The competition was stiff this year, so you should feel especially proud to be on the list.”
Among these 30 breakthrough leaders are senior executives from The Atlantic, Conde Nast, GQ, Men’s Health, Playboy, Glamour, InStyle, and on and on. Then Portland Monthly magazine. To see the full list, visit www.foliomag.com/events/folio-30-under-30. The awards will be celebrated with a luncheon at Hilton Midtown in Manhattan on October 10.
“I was pretty surprised,” Meaghan says. “I was struck that the 30 under 30 wasn’t restricted to artists but included any kind of publishing executives. Our most recent cover floated into my mind.”
We congratulate Meaghan Maurice, who always keeps our readers in mind with her stunning designs. Because of her work’s extraordinary perspective, we know you already feel connected to her.
