UPDATE (April 13, 10:55 a.m.): Michael Picon has confirmed with FishbowlNY that he left Redbook in February.
Sure looks that way. We’re hearing that Redbook creative director Michael Picon is no longer with the Hearst magazine. His LinkedIn page and Web site have both been updated to reflect his current self-employment as an independent design consultant.
Picon had been with Redbook from November 2007 to February 2010, according to his Web site. He has also worked for New York and Sports Illustrated, among others.
In another high-level departure, Redbook editor Stacy Morrison left the company last week.
Neither a call to Picon nor a call to a Hearst spokesperson were immediately returned. We’ll update you when we hear more.
