An Evening with Roger Black

For more than 35 years, working with magazines like Rolling Stone, for newspapers like The New York Times and web sites like MSNBC, Roger Black has been developing ways to communicate content more effectively.

Recently he completed redesigns of the Scientific American (both print and online), and is consulting on the design of MIT’s Technology Review web site.

His teams have redesigned Reader's Digest, Esquire, The Nation (Bangkok) and the Los Angeles Times, to name a few. Last year he redesigned The Washington Post.

Black is now working with a major new digital content group, Nomad Editions on its launch, scheduled this fall. Nomad is the first customer for Treesaver, an HTML5 app that presents web content in pages that adapt to every screen size. Treesaver is being developed for Roger Black Studio by Filipe Fortes.

A partner in Ready-Media (a new template-based design service),  Font Bureau and Danilo Black, he works from a small office in New York and has homes in Texas and Florida. Black is a recipient of the distinguished alumni award from the University of Chicago.
